Mangonia Park is a Tri-Rail commuter rail station in Mangonia Park, Florida. This is the system's northernmost station. The station is located on 45th Street (CR 702), just west of Australian Avenue (CR 704A). There are 273 parking spaces at the station.[1]

History[edit]

The Mangonia Park station was opened on October 28, 1996 along a former Seaboard Air Line Railroad line, and was the first station to serve the community.[2]

Every January, Palm Beach County Public School safety patrol boards charter an Amtrak train at the station for their annual trip to Washington, D.C.[citation needed] The train operates with a Silver Meteor consist plus several Horizon coaches. On the days this train operates, the northbound or southbound Silver Meteors are actually canceled since the train uses the equipment that would normally be used for those runs.[citation needed] This is the only time an Amtrak operated train stops at this station.[3]

Transit connections[edit]

Mangonia Park is served by routes 20, 31, and 33 of Palm Tran, the county bus system.[1] These buses serve The Gardens Mall, Downtown West Palm Beach, the VA Medical Center,[2] and Cross County Plaza.
