Delray Beach station is a train station in Delray Beach, Florida, that is served by Tri-Rail and Amtrak. It is located on South Congress Avenue (SR 807), south of West Atlantic Avenue (SR 806) and east of State Road 9.

The station officially opened in 1991 after legal squabbles and poor access led Tri-Rail to abandon the historic former Seaboard Air Line Railway depot located a few blocks north. Amtrak, which had also been using the old Seaboard depot, moved to the station in 1995.[4] Its Silver Meteor and Silver Star stop at the station, which was remodeled between 2004 and 2006 to accommodate a second track.
