All Aboard Florida proudly introducesBrightline, an express train service that will provide express, safe, relaxing, intercity travel in one of the most populous and visited regions in the United States. Brightline presents a bright and optimistic view of the future for the millions of residents and tourists who crisscross the state’s highways and skyways annually by offering an important new travel alternative in Florida, the first of its kind in the United States.
Brightline is reinventing what traveling by train can mean in America, making it a forward-leaning solution that is a smarter alternative to more cars on crowded roads. The new service will blend train travel and hospitality, creating a new and innovative travel experience focused on providing customer service that extends well beyond the trains and stations
Brightline will use the existing Florida East Coast Railway corridor between Miami and Cocoa, and is building new track along State Road 528 between Cocoa and Orlando. Once complete, it will serve residents and visitors in this area with a train that is convenient, safe, fast and environmentally friendly.
This train doesn’t just do wonders for transportation. It does a lot for the Florida community. Over the next eight years, it will have a direct, positive impact on Florida’s economy. During construction, it will create nearly 10,000 jobs. It will also require zero funding from taxpayers. And it’s all moving full-speed ahead.
