Brightline trains commenced service from the two stations on 21 December 2022. With these openings, Brightline now operates from five stations in South Florida, enabling passengers to travel between MiamiCentral, Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton while avoiding traffic congestion.

The new Aventura station will also offer an express service to and from Miami during the peak morning and evening hour commute periods, taking just 20 minutes.

Goddard, president at Brightline said:

“Brightline is on a mission to build a better way to get there. We’re connecting the state and economies making it easier to do business while expanding your backyard in so many ways. Opening our stations in Aventura and Boca Raton is a community-wide effort that will alleviate congestion and regionalise South Florida. Thanks to our amazing partners who made this vision possible.”

The 34,000 square foot Aventura station has 240 parking spaces, a bus drop-off area and a pedestrian skybridge. In addition, Brightline is currently designing a new pedestrian bridge to connect the platform to the Aventura Mall.

Meanwhile, Brightline’s 22,000-square-foot Boca Raton station features a 455-space parking garage and will also provide complimentary Brightline+ electric shuttles to downtown Boca Raton.

Travel between Boca and MiamiCentral will take approximately 60 minutes.

Work also remains underway on Brightline’s Orlando station, which is due to open next year.
