Miami-Orlando Rail Line Will Be Called Brightline, Pushed Back To Late 2017

All Aboard Florida today launched a new brand for their rail service, Brightline.

Siemens rail cars are already being built, with the first delivery set for summer 2016.

Passenger service won’t actually begin until mid-2017, and even then it will only run between Miami and West Palm Beach. The line between Miami and Orlando is now scheduled to start in late 2017.

Double tracking of the line between Miami and West Palm Beach will begin by the end of this year, according to the Sun Sentinel. Until now, work has focused bypass tracks to allow for station construction, as well as new rail crossings.
