All Aboard Florida Get’s New Name

Company unveils new images and new name.

All Aboard Florida will be called Brightline and the privately owned train line will connect Orlando to cities in South Florida.

The 235-mile route will connect Central Florida to West Palm, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

The company made their announcement in Miami Monday and talked about the project’s benefits in Florida claiming the trains could take as many as 700,000 cars off of Interstate 95 and 3 million vehicles off roads each year.

Brightline’s president said it’s a quicker and smarter way to travel.

“It’s a new option for going to the places that we really need to go to and to do the things that we really want to do here in the Sunshine State,” said Mike Reininger. “It’s an alternative to more and more cars on evermore congested roadways.”

The Orlando station will be located within Orlando International Airport’s new south intermodal center.

Brightline said its trains will also be eye-catching red, orange, green, blue and pink led by a yellow locomotive.

Trains will be equipped with Wi-Fi and passengers can purchase food with wine and coffee brought to their seats.

Ticket pricing and package information will be released in the coming months leading up to a mid-2017 launch of the first phase of service.
