Submissions to Brightline's RFP for the Treasure Coast station are due by Dec. 22.

Brightline has launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a new station at Treasure Coast of Florida.

Proposals under the RFP may come from private or public land owners that control property along the Brightline/FEC Railway corridor in St. Lucie or Martin counties and meet the qualifications.

“We’re excited to begin the process of identifying a station location in the Treasure Coast and have seen tremendous support from the local community,” said Brightline CEO Michael Reininger. “Expanding Brightline into the Treasure Coast region will make Brightline one of the most accessible forms of transportation in Florida, giving access to nearly half of the state’s residents.”

Brightline currently operates stations in Miami, Aventura, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and opened its new station in Orlando on Sept. 22, 2023.
