About the Project

On January 28, 2021, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four, and Broward County signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on the Broward Commuter Rail (BCR) Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study. The objective of this PD&E study is to evaluate a regional rail transit system on the shared-use FEC railroad corridor from Aventura in Miami-Dade County to Deerfield Beach in Broward County (approximately 27 miles) to expand existing passenger rail service, relieve I‐95 congestion, improve connectivity and transportation choices, foster economic development, and promote sustainable land use through transit‐oriented development (TOD). FDOT is the technical lead on the PD&E study, while Broward County is taking the lead on financial planning, related agreements, and coordination with local governments and others.
