The South Florida East Coast Corridor (SFECC) Study proposes reintroducing commuter passenger service along an 85-mile stretch of the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway corridor between downtown Miami and Jupiter. Such service will connect the hearts of 28 densely-populated municipalities in eastern Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. It will improve north-south mobility, encourage stronger east-west connections, promote redevelopment and revitalization, and enhance freight movement. Reinstating passenger service in the FEC corridor will provide an efficient option to driving on congested streets and highways and a much-needed integrated transportation link essential for smart growth management, sustainability and a vital economy.

This corridor will serve as the spine of a regional intermodal network, connecting to the existing bus systems and rail transit systems including both Tri-Rail and Metrorail. It will also integrate with the various transit systems including the new Miami Trolley, the proposed Wave in downtown Fort Lauderdale and the proposed Central Broward East-West Connection. It links to the three major airports, Miami International, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and Palm Beach International; the four regional airports within the tri-county area; and to the region's seaports, PortMiami, Port Everglades and Port of Palm Beach.

Include a paved path within the rail corridor to prevent trespassing on the tracks, improve access to the stations and create a community amenity to off-set the impacts of additional train noise and air pollution.
