The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four and Broward County are performing a PD&E Study for the Broward Commuter Rail (BCR) along the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway from Aventura in Miami-Dade County to Deerfield Beach in Broward County. 

FDOT and Broward County have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to continue efforts to improve mobility in the region. The scope of the BCR Project PD&E is to develop and analyze alternatives for commuter rail service along the FEC Railway corridor from Aventura to Deerfield Beach. The FEC corridor is a shared-use corridor with FEC freight trains and intercity passenger trains. Florida East Coast Railway, LLC owns the FEC Railway right of way and operates the rail freight service in the corridor. Brightline operates inter-city passenger rail trains via a passenger easement in the corridor. The commuter rail will share tracks with freight and Brightline. The study is being conducted in coordination with many parties that have an interest in the FEC railroad corridor. Miami-Dade County is also studying the implementation of commuter rail service in the FEC corridor for the segment from Downtown Miami to a proposed station in Aventura, known as the Northeast Corridor. 

The BCR is a 27-mile segment of this commuter rail service that will include the necessary rail, signaling, safety and communications improvements, and passenger stations and amenities connecting to existing and planned local and regional transit service. Six potential stations will be studied and evaluated within the study limits.
