Another Brightline station in South Florida will open soon. The city of Boca Raton will be the next stop! A closing ceremony was held by the train company, which announced that operations will begin in the city later this year. It will be the company’s fourth station to operate in South Florida, along with Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
Brightline released a press release announcing the completion of the works:
“ Brightline, the only provider of modern, eco-friendly, intercity rail in America, along with its contractor Kaufman Lynn, hosted the “topping-off” ceremony for its Boca Raton station and parking garage located at 101 NW 4th Street. Brightline’s president, Patrick Goddard, was joined by Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer, Kaufman Lynn Construction President Chris Long, and city council members. The event signifies a milestone event as the vertical and structural work has been completed and the focus now shifts towards completing the interiors. The Topping Off event will be commemorated with a ceremonial signing of a beam inside the train station. ”
According to studies by Brightline, approximately 1.8 million people are expected to use train services from Boca Raton Station by 2025, contributing an estimated $11 million a year to the local economy.
The city of Boca Raton was inserted in Brightline’s main route as it is seen by the company as a market that has been emerging in Florida, in addition to growing in recent years as a center of technology and innovation. The resort brings together an expressive community of Brazilians and is one of the main destinations for new residents coming from other states, mainly retirees.
Upcoming stations: Aventura and Orlando
