The All Aboard Florida West Palm Beach Station, which plans were unveiled Monday, July 21st, 2015, is being built in downtown and will be completed in early in 2017.
All Aboard Florida will be a travel experience like no other in the country. The West Palm Beach hub would be a nearly 60,000-square-foot station and platform off Quadrille Boulevard between Datura and Evernia streets. The station would be north of CityPlace and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and south of the government center district and Clematis Street. The station in West Palm Beach will get travelers and commuters into the city and Palm Beach County faster and more comfortably than ever. It stands at the historic center of a project that is furthering Henry Flagler’s vision for Florida and taking another step toward bringing express passenger rail back to the state.
The West Palm Beach Station will offer a fast, safe, relaxing transportation option for those weary of navigating interstate traffic or waiting hours at the airport. The West Palm Beach Station is expected to create an economic impact to Palm Beach County.
“There is no doubt as to the benefit an All Aboard station will bring to our city, and we continue to look forward to the economic impact for our city,” Mayor Jeri Muoio has said about the All Aboard Florida West Palm Beach Station.
The design of the new station with multiple levels and shops mirrors the other two South Florida stations. West Palm Beach will be one of the first cities to enjoy service when trips to and from Miami begin in 2017. Full service between Miami and Orlando —with stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale— will start soon after.
For commuters, business travelers, vacationers and others, Brightline will make trips between Miami and Orlando faster and more comfortable than other options. Once fully operational, travelers in Central and South Florida will enjoy the efficiency of modern passenger rail and easy connection to four popular Sunshine State destinations.
All Aboard Florida is actually a big project but it also encloses a historical moment as it means a revival in the private railroad transportation which has been in decline for decades.
Brightline will be the train connecting the sunshine state in the most efficient way and will become the future of travel. When you ride Brightline, you enjoy a modern and convenient passenger rail experience. Once on the train, enjoy ergonomic seating, Wi-Fi and other amenities on the Siemens train-sets. Upon arrival at your destination and its modern new station, connect to the city using easily accessible local transportation. This passenger experience lets you ride the rail to and from West Palm Beach without worry.
