Aventura Train Station Proposal Wins Approval From Miami-Dade Transit Oversight Board
A Miami-Dade County citizen transit oversight board has recommended the approval of a publicly-funded Virgin Trains station in Aventura despite lingering concerns the station could attract low ridership at high ticket fees. The plan involves Miami-Dade’s purchasing a plot of land near Aventura Mall and building a $76.7 station with taxpayer funds. Virgin Trains, formerly Brightline, would cover the operating costs for the service between its existing Downtown Miami station and the new Aventura station. The deal is a result of Virgin's ownership of the track along the Miami-Dade northeast corridor to Aventura. The county cannot create a rail service along the transitway without partnering with Virgin. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Alice Bravo, the county’s transit director, have said the deal for the Aventura station would give the county a new rail line to a congested area not served by Metrorail.
