Default From Jupiter, FL (East) back to Boca Raton / Deerfield Beach (East) - Prefer Train.

I don't seem to see a way... but is there a way to take the train from Jupiter to, say Boca or Deerfield Beach?

The game here is to ride bike to Jupiter and then train back. Otherwise, Bike-Sleep-Bike.

Thanks,
Pete

I think you would have to get on the train in mangonia park. That is as far north as tri-Rail goes.

nope, they wanted to extend the tri-rail and like 88% of jupiter opposed it. 45st street in WPB is as far as it does. Going from Jupiter north on the boat is a wonderful ride, ditch the bike.

Jupiter's opposition to rail of all kinds is going to bite them. Brightline is putting in a station in Stuart (who smartly went with the plan) and the increased passenger and freight traffic will affect Jupiter without even the benefit of a train station.

Agreed. No idea when it became "smart" to say no to a rail stop. Guess the city has enough money. Stupid.

anyone who lives or works there understands why they definitely would not want a stop there. Its also why they are trying to limit development. The secret about Jupiter got out 8-10 years ago and the real estate is booming. I wouldnt want the tri-rail to stop there either.
Stuart needed a stop Jupiter not so much.

Fair enough. But keep that in mind when economies shift to other places during the next down-turn. Don't get me wrong, I understand your position, and I'd want it to stay "quiet" too... but in the end, that's not sustainable. A Tri-Rail is low hanging fruit for economic boost.

Jupiter isn't what I would call "quiet" anymore. It used to have a snowbird season, and now it does not. Indiantown road is a 6-lane traffic jam during most hours of the day now. That's the cost for being in demand. The plus side for me is that I bought my house there for 70k seven years ago and sold it this summer for 245k. I'm not real good with my goes-into's but that is a decent profit.

A train stop there would be negligible in terms of its traffic disruption compared to trains simply rolling right through, especially a 4 car brightline train. In all honesty, if Jupiter had a brightline station I would have stayed since my commute is to Miami and the train is nicer than a car ride on 95.

To the OP's original question... you should bile to Jupiter, camp at Jonathan Dickinson 2 nights and spend a day riding there and cruising around Jupiter, then ride back. If you're into that sort of thing.

Bullshit. Stuart voted for a station hoping to slow the dam train down. You really don't understand the concept of Brightline, do you? It has nothing to do with moving people locally, like tri-rail. It's about tourists to and from Disney. We hear a small faction wanting a train, but that small number could barely fill a bus.

Passenger rail has failed 3 times already on FEC. It's ancient technology., out of place in this environment. Even Disney recognized monorail of some form was the way to move people 50 years ago.

I know you hate rail. So Iíll just dismiss you.

Rail is, by far, the most efficient way to move freight... and people if executed correctly.

You are as vocal against rail is as I am against LG. I get it, man. Even if youíre wrong. 😝

I think people are seeing these places they have lived in for a long time change. The water isnít as clean, the fishing isnít as good, the reefs arenít as vibrant, there are a lot more people, and these were places that were special, itís why people are moving there. The people that are moving there come from somewhere that isnít special itís why they left. Yes rail is a good way to move people and freight, but do it somewhere that isnít special. Somewhere that can be replicated easy. The jupiter area has seen a lot of change since 2010 imo. One of the reason from north palm beach north is special is because the rail isnít there. The neighborhoods are different from any other area even In south Florida. When I say special itís because it is, and if you havenít spent any real time there you wouldnít know. I mean real time not just cruising in and eating a quick bite on the water.

Bitterbeerface,

I don't understand the concept of brightline, but somebody does because they continue to run and expand. I don't need to. It benefits me so I'm in favor of it. And when the station comes to Stuart I'll ride that train to Miami because Miami is a great place to work. Suck on that.

U are are so out of touch. This ain't up north. Statewide passenger rail is uselkess except to a small majority who can't adapt to a new environment. It ain't funny. How many more times does passenger rail have to fail before outsiders gwt it thru their thick skulls. What works in South Florida is NOT universal. Do you guys really think there will be "high speed rail" along the coast? Ever ridden a passenger train on FEC? Do you have any idea what the rail line is like?

It's all about moving freight along the coast, and moving tourists to and from Disney. If you believe otherwise, I've gotta helluva deal on a bridge....

So you really don't comprehend what's going on, yet you have formed an opinion based on what? Your own very local knowledge? If you like Miami so much, why live so far away? And the moronic aspect is..you really believe Brightline views YOU as an example of customer base? Enough people to support 30 trains a day from Orlando to Miami? Obviously one of the deep thinkers....

You've already got train service..why do you need a second one?

I could go into it, but I enjoy even more telling you how much I love Miami. The culture, the atmosphere, the diversity and the opportunity. What a great city! Miami is, without a doubt, the most vital city to much of south Florida. I spend more time there than I do in Port Saint Lucie, so really I live in Miami and vacation in Port Saint Lucie. More brightline in my life, please! More trains passing through Stuart! More freight! More trains! More stops! More bridge closings! And all thanks to the economic lifeblood that is the great city of Miami!

A thread about wanting a non-car way to get from Jupiter to Deerfield Beach has turned into a RailProtestFest.

Only on the The THT. LOL.

We've all been forced to listen to the inane rantings about Miami or whatever else one particular stuart resident purports to be a drag on society, so I like poking that grumpy old troglodyte any chance I get. Collateral damage I suppose. THT can really... go off the rails!
