New Florida Train Service Announced From Miami To Orlando


All Aboard Florida has revealed that the new express inter city train travel service, which will cost more than $3 billion to build, will be called the Brightline.

Service between West Palm Beach and Miami is scheduled to begin in 2017, with full service between Orlando and Miami scheduled to start later that year.

There will be free Wi-Fi and multiple power outlets at every seat. Reserved seating will be available in various configurations, including single seats and tables for groups of four.

All Aboard Florida and tourism officials say the trains and their stations could transform travel throughout Florida, one of the country's most populous states.

Brightline trains will cover 235 miles from Miami to Orlando and its express service will be able to go up to 125 mph. Overall the total commute time is expected to be 25 percent faster than driving.

There's been a recent resurgence in interest in trains, particularly among younger travelers, says Jim Wallington, a train expert at America by Rail, which promotes train travel.
