There are two main rail corridors running through Palm Beach County, the Florida East Coast (FEC) railway corridor and the CSX railway corridor, a portion of which is owned by the Florida Dept. of Transportation for use by Tri-Rail commuter trains. Additionally, U.S. Sugar owns and operates the South Central Florida Express (SCFE) railway in western Palm Beach County.
Tri-Rail is South Florida’s regional commuter rail system that has been in operation since 1989. In 2003, SFRTA was created by Florida Statute to expand cooperation between Palm Beach County, Broward County, and Miami-Dade County. Today, Tri-Rail spans 71 miles from the Mangonia Park Tri-Rail Station in Palm Beach County to the Miami Intermodal Center in Miami-Dade County.
Brightline is a private higher-speed intercity passenger rail service between Miami and West Palm Beach, along the Florida East Coast (FEC) railway. This is the newest transit system serving South Florida since its inception in early 2018. Stations in Orlando are currently under construction.
