Submissions Due By December For Brightline Treasure Coast Station

Brightline issued a request for proposals on Thursday from public and private landowners in Martin and St. Lucie Counties, where cities like Stuart, White City and Fort Pierce have already shown interest, to host the new station. Submissions are due by December and the winning city can expect train service to begin in 2028.

The high-speed rail company is specifically looking for a site adjacent to the Florida East Coast Railway that’s at least 2 acres, can accommodate a 150-meter long platform and two sets of tracks, as well as a 200-space parking garage and other pick-up and drop-off areas. Brightline is also seeking information on public subsidies and financial considerations.

Its last two stations, in Boca Raton and Aventura, were built on city-owned land and offered at little cost to the private company.

Brightline currently operates stations in Miami, Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Orlando. The Treasure Coast station would be a stop along the route from West Palm Beach to Orlando.
