Brightline has quietly unveiled plans for a new transportation option called Brightline+.
The new ride sharing service will be offered in the Miami area, up to five miles from Brightline stations.
According to the Brightline website, a shared ride to and from the Brightline station will be offered for free, up to 3 miles away. Passengers will be picked up in a “luxury shuttle,” with Brickell and downtown Miami within range.
A premium, private ride will also be offered, up to five miles away. At that distance, parts of South Beach will be within range of the MiamiCentral station.
Passengers will be able to book the new service in the Brightline app.
While the standard shared service will initially be free, there will eventually be a charge. However, it will be offered a reduced fare and will always be cheaper than ride sharing services, Brightline says.
