There’s always space for one more on the Palmetto platform. Since Palmetto is the northern terminus of the Green Line, trains sit here until it’s their turn to depart and begin their voyage down to Dadeland South station. Until July 2012, when the Miami International Airport station opened, this was the system’s newest station, having opened in 2003. It was supposed to attract a large amount of northern commuters from Northwestern Miami-Dade and South Broward County, but unfortunately on most days, this station is rarely busy.
