Here is the scenario: you got a great deal on a cheap flight into Miami for your Disney vacation, but now how do you get to Orlando? Spend an arm and leg on a taxi or rent a car, an expense which cancels out your great flight deal! Come mid 2017 this will no longer be a problem!

A privately owned rail service is creating a train route for a new train called Brightline.  These Brightline trains which were designed by Rockwell Group and will be express trains serviced by All Aboard Florida. True to their name the trains will be red, orange, green, pink and blue with a yellow locomotive.

The bright colors will catch everyone’s attention but the free WiFi and gourmet meals and drinks will keep them coming back! The trains will also be pet friendly. There will also be a strong emphasis on hospitality, says the president of Brightline, Jim Wallington, a train expert commented:

“This younger generation is less car prone, they are not buying cars like we used to and they are demanding that there be alternate transportation.”

The trains will run from Miami to Orlando stopping at Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.  It is set to start running by mid 2017; there will be 32 trains a day (16 in each direction). The complete ride will take 3 hours.

Citizens Against Rail Expansion are against Brightline claiming there could be problems since the hospitals are on one side of the track with the emergency responders on the opposite side.

I think this is a great idea and cannot wait to be able to fly into different airports and visit different cities while in Florida. How do you feel about this? Comment below!

One thought on “New Passenger Train from Miami to Orlando

  1. And when you arrive in Orlando, from West Palm or Miami, how will you get to WDW? Uber? Mears? car rental? Do you think Disney may provide a service to the train station, like the Magical Express?
