Site Selected for Second Boca Raton Tri-Rail Station

Proposed concept plan for new Boca Raton Tr-Rail station

Concept plan for a second Boca Raton Tri-Rail station proposed for Military Trail at NW 19th St. on what is known as the former King's Deli site.

With public input throughout the process, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority has selected a proposed location for a second Tri-Rail station in Boca Raton. The existing station at Yamato Rd. is the busiest in the three-county system.

The proposed site and concept plan offer as many as 75 parking spaces, a bus pullout on Military Trail, traffic signal access for outbound buses, and a connection to a future multi-use path.

Next steps include finalizing design plans, acquiring right-of-way, and seeking allocations for construction funding.

Quiet Zones Now in Effect in West Palm Beach,
Lake Worth, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton

No Train Horn Sign at Railroad Crossing

Quiet Zones are now in effect along more sections of the FEC rail corridor, meaning both passenger and freight trains do not routinely blow horns. While the elimination of train horns except in emergencies will improve quality of life for surrounding communities, it is critical for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists to stay out of the rail corridor at all times except at designated crossings when gates are in the open position. 

The Palm Beach TPA provided funding for the supplemental safety measures (SSMs) required for Quiet Zone eligibility at the option of each local jurisdiction.

Recent Events

13th Annual Dump the Pump Day

The Palm Beach TPA joined with Palm Tran, Tri-Rail, Broward MPO, Miami-Dade TPO and other transit providers in the region to thank riders for "dumping the (gas) pump" and taking transit rather than driving. Dump the Pump Day was part of the 13th annual national event on Thursday, June 21. Promoted by APTA (American Public Transportation Association), it is a day to highlight the many benefits of using public transportation. The TPA teams at the West Palm Beach Intermodal Center and the Boca Raton Tri-Rail station conducted a transportation survey and provided giveaways including Palm Tran and Tri-Rail passes.
