Very soon, there will be a new mobility option between Florida’s two main cities, Miami and Orlando, where the famous Disneyworld park is located and where millions of people visit annually. The train is expected to launch from the Miami airport to Orlando this summer.
Brightline trains on that route also stop at other places equally important to Cuban residents in that area, as many live there. Departing Miami, it will make stops in Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and finally the Orlando airport.
According to a report by Telemundo television network, this week the train company has started selling tickets that can be used from the beginning of September this year. However, the project is expected to launch this summer, possibly between July and August.
Those interested can purchase tickets on the website gobrightline.com or by downloading the train company’s mobile application. The official go-live date will be announced when Brightline ends its successful trial period. The main train station is located inside Orlando Airport and connects to a car park.
How much is the train from Miami to Orlando?
