Brightline In Talks To Add Stations In Walt Disney World, Tampa

Brightline (soon to be Virgin Trains) is in talks to build station in both Tampa and Walt Disney World.

A prospectus issued this month for their IPO shows both potential stops. Disney and Brightline have not commented on the possible Disney World station, Orlando’s WFTV reported. FDOT has approved negotiations on a lease for a Disney station on I-4, according to WPLG.

The Orlando to Tampa route is expected to begin service in 2021, with top speeds of 125 miles per hour.

The  Florida Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that they had awarded Brightline the right to negotiate a lease on the Orlando to Tampa route. Brightline told investors they expect ticket prices on that route to average $35 for a one way seat.

Miami to Orlando is expected to average $100 for a one way seat.
