Florida City Considers Becoming Brightline Stop

September 17, 2018

Officials in Stuart, Florida, are eyeing development of a station for Brightline service.

Stuart is one of four cities that Brightline is considering adding to its network.

However, some Stuart officials are either opposed to or lukewarm about the Brightline station proposal, including Interim City Manager Dave Dyess who said the city continues to oppose the train

Mayor Kelli Glass Leighton said that the city will gauge public opinion before making a decision.

Stuart might have to compete with nearby Fort Pierce for Brightline stop. Also being considered for a stop are Sebastian and Vero Beach, but neither of those cities is seen as likely to submit a proposal.
