First private US passenger rail line in 100 years is about to link Miami and Orlando at high speed

  • Brightline, a privately owned high-speed passenger train service, is launching in Florida between Miami and Orlando, aiming to carry 8 million passengers annually. The company is charging single riders $158 round-trip for business class and $298 for first-class, and it plans to run 32 trains daily.
  • The success of Brightline could lead to the development of more high-speed rail lines between major cities in the US. The company is also building a line between Southern California and Las Vegas, set to open in 2027.
  • Brightline has faced setbacks including a shutdown due to COVID-19 and a failed partnership with Richard Branson's Virgin Group. Safety concerns have also been raised due to the company's high fatality rate. However, Brightline has implemented safety measures, such as closed-circuit cameras and better crossing gates.
