Brightline to Add New Station Along Florida’s Treasure Coast

Brightline has announced that it has selected Martin County and the City of Stuart as the site for its next intercity passenger rail station. The location was chosen after a review of five proposals from private and public land owners along the Brightline/Florida East Coast Railway corridor in Martin and St. Lucie Counties. Expanding into the Treasure Coast will make Brightline one of the most accessible forms of transportation in Florida, giving access to nearly half of the state’s residents and millions of visitors.

The decision to select Stuart was driven by several factors, including the location and physical characteristics of the site, and the ease with which the site will integrate into Brightline’s existing rail infrastructure network. The site is also accessible to key local attractions.

“We’ve seen significant demand and support for a Brightline Station in the Treasure Coast, which was evident during this process. It was a difficult decision and we’re grateful for everyone’s support and efforts to make this happen,” said Brian Kronberg, Brightline’s senior vice president of development and construction.

The announcement of the station site kicks off the process of memorializing a deal structure with Martin County and the City of Stuart. Following city and county approvals, Brightline and its partners will start the design and engineering of the station, parking structure and necessary rail infrastructure.

The proposed Brightline Stuart station is located on 2.35 acres in the heart of historic downtown Stuart in Martin County. The station is conveniently located between the Miami and Orlando stations. Its location is approximately 40 miles north of Brightline West Palm Beach, just 40 minutes by train, and the station is easily accessible from I-95, Florida’s Turnpike and the local roadway network. Brightline Stuart guests will be within walking distance of the downtown and minutes from Stuart’s beaches, oceanfront resorts and  “Treasure Coast” lifestyle.
