Construction will begin within the next two months on two new Brightline stations in Aventura & Boca Raton.
Both stations are on track to break ground in the first quarter of 2020, the company told investors last week. They will be open by the end
A third new station at PortMiami is expected to be finalized this quarter as well, although it is a bit further behind and construction won’t start in the first quarter.
Construction is already underway on an expansion to Orlando, and revenue service remains on schedule to begin in 2022.
A memorandum of understanding to build a station on the Disney property in Orlando was signed in November, and planning is underway. It is expected to open shortly after Brightline’s main station at Orlando airport opens.
Brightline continues to break ridership and passholder records each month. Total passenger count for December 2019 was 127,690, a 30% increase over December 2018.
