Brightline officials have said the first phase of the quietzone will be installed along a 9-mile stretch of track that runs between Park Place in West Palm Beach and Central Boulevard in Lantana. The company has been testing its first train along that section of rail.

The company has asked cities along the route to help promote the campaign, part of a national program called Operation Lifesaver, which is designed to reduce collisions, fatalities and injuries at highway-rail crossings and prevent trespassing on or near railroad tracks.
On Friday, Brightline was named “2017 Business of the Year” by the Chamber of Commerce of The Palm Beaches. The company received the award at the 2017 Business Awards Breakfast held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
