Brightline passenger rail service between Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Miami will extend to Orlando.

All Aboard Florida expects in the first quarter of 2018 to start construction to extend its Brightline passenger rail service to Orlando and to launch service to Miami. The Federal Railroad Administration on Friday approved All Aboard Florida’s plan to link Orlando to its pending Brightline service in South Florida.
The Brightline rail service is expected to start between downtown stations in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale before expanding to Miami. All Aboard Florida had expected to launch its Brightline service before the end of the year, but the company has not yet announced a schedule or ticket prices. [Palm Beach Post] Mike Seemuth
