Brightline to Open New Rail Station in Stuart, Florida

Brightline has announced plans to open a new intercity rail station in the City of Stuart in Martin County, Florida.

This location was chosen from a review of five proposals from private and public landowners along the Brightline/Florida East Coast Railway corridor.

The decision to select Stuart was impacted by several key factors, including the location and physical characteristics of the site and the ease with which it will integrate into Brightline’s existing rail network.

Brightline also acknowledged the dynamics of the local market in Stuart and the site’s accessibility to key local attractions.

Congressman Brian Mast, FL District 21 said:

“I congratulate the City of Stuart and Martin County on its successful bid to secure the new Brightline station and parking structure. This is proof that our community can work together and come to a solution if we use common sense. I look forward to the economic development the Treasure Coast stop will bring to our local businesses and the opportunities it will provide to the surrounding cities and the region.”

Stuart is conveniently located between Brightline’s Miami and Orlando stations, thus forming part of its existing route.

The new station is expected to open in the second half of 2026 and will be built on a 2.35-acre site in the heart of historic downtown Stuart.

Brian Kronberg, Brightline’s Senior Vice President of Development and Construction said:

“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. We couldn’t be more excited to make the City of Stuart our hub for Brightline along Florida’s Treasure Coast.”
