Florida’s Brightline Rail adds a new stop: What you need to know

by Alice

Brightline, Florida’s high-speed rail company, is embarking on a new phase of expansion by adding a fresh stop along the Treasure Coast.

Scheduled to open in the latter half of 2026, the new station will be situated in Stuart, Florida. Brightline selected Stuart due to its strategic location, physical attributes, and seamless integration potential with the existing rail infrastructure network.


Brian Kronberg, Brightline’s Senior Vice President of Development and Construction, expressed gratitude for the widespread support received during the decision-making process. He highlighted the evident demand for a Treasure Coast station and acknowledged the collective efforts that made it possible.


The addition of the Stuart station will provide travelers with another convenient stop between Miami and Orlando, augmenting the route established by Brightline last year.


Since its inception in 2018, Brightline has steadily expanded its services beyond its initial route between West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. Aventura and Boca Raton were incorporated into its network, with Orlando being the latest addition.

Travelers utilizing the new Stuart station can expect a journey of approximately 40 minutes from West Palm Beach. The station’s proximity to downtown Stuart and the region’s beaches ensures convenient access for visitors.

Stuart Mayor Becky Brunner hailed the decision to include Stuart as a “historic return to our roots,” fulfilling a vision held by the city for over three decades. She emphasized that the new station will offer residents and visitors a premier travel experience, alleviating highway congestion.

Brightline’s expansion plans extend beyond Florida, with the company initiating work on a rail corridor in southern California. This project, known as Brightline West, aims to connect the state with Las Vegas, spanning over 200 miles and linking Sin City with the Los Angeles area.
