Tri-Rail Station likely coming to Gardens, but where will it go?

Palm Beach Gardens has snagged a $120,000 grant to plan a new Tri-Rail station that will extend the commuter rail north and eventually allow thousands who commute to work along PGA Boulevard an alternative to slogging through highway traffic snarls.

The money comes from the Federal Transit Administration and will have to be met with $30,000 from Palm Beach Gardens.

Residents will be able to weigh in on what the station should look like at a future public meeting. The station is expected to sit near the Florida East Coast tracks at PGA Boulevard and Alternate A1A.

The commuter train line stretches from Miami International Airport and stops at 45th Street in Mangonia Park, but plans have long been in the works to extend its reach through Palm Beach Gardens and into Jupiter as part of the Tri-Rail Coastal Link.
