Update: Brightline’s official launch date for Miami service is May 19.
At Brightline’s MiamiCentral terminal, the finishing touches are being put in place ahead of a grand opening that is expected shortly.
The Tri-Rail station at MiamiCentral as of late April:
Can’t wait for the Tri-Rail Coastal Link and local stops in Miami.
This is not going to happen. Brightline has beeen obstructing Coastal Link. Read the transcripts or Watch the Miami-Dade Commission meetings.
Brightline wants to run their own version of Coastal Link instead of having the current Tri-Rail SFRTA operator do it.
Love it. Hope the trees remain.
In that youtube video? The trees at the intersection it’s being filmed from aren’t even on FECR property.
I will be the first to purchase a ticket round trip! I love this for Miami mobility! I might even walk there from Icon!!!!
Is there a walk ramp connection from Brightline Station to the Metro Government station ?
i think it all comes down to our politicians lacking vision and just wanting to get away with $$$
forget about brightline. Use this as a platform to start building a Miami version of the NYC Subway
One of the best suggestions yet!! They need to figure something out. Since we can’t have underground like NYC, build elevated like Chicago.
Not gonna happen. We cant even afford to extend the existing metro rail system. Pathetic I know..
It’s not just Miami. Rail transit is ailing most everywhere you look.
Park and ride itself is a failure, that’s why TOD is crucial with better connections and walkability.
Not gonna happen. Our suburban politicians are not interested at all, they want to perpetuate the American love for SUV and suburban shopping malls.
We can afford it. Politicians would rather pocket money for themselves, or give it to road projects with rigged bidding favoring their buddies at MCM.
Cant do it in miami due to sea level and geology.
