BOCA RATON, Fla. — The city of Boca Raton voted to approve an ordinance for both the Brightline train station and the parking structure on Northwest Second Avenue.
The plans go back to Decemeber 2019.
Tuesday night's vote was 5-0. It was mentioned in the meeting that grant money will reduce the city's cost by more than a million dollars.
Brightline, which currently has stations in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, has not operated train service since the end of March 2020 due to COVID-19.
Construction on a new route to Orlando has continued during the pandemic, but Brightline officials said earlier this year that trains to Central Florida might not be ready until 2023.
Brightline is scheduled to resume service in November.
