Brightline is coming to the Magic City. Our new Orlando train station will connect 170 miles of track from central Florida to the rest of SoFlo. Construction is underway in the South Terminal of Orlando International Airport. Now you can cut your travel time in half and take a train from Orlando to Miami without the traffic.
Only the beginning. Our train to Orlando is the first of many expansions into Central Florida. As well as our Orlando station, Brightline is working on a Tampa station to give access to Central Florida’s west coast.
More about this project:
Brightline’s new South Terminal at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) is a part of the company’s Phase 2 expansion into Central Florida including a Tampa extension. The massive infrastructure project is making progress and encompasses four zones including the area of the Orlando International Airport and the Brightline Vehicle Maintenance Facility.
This monumental endeavor, which will use 225 million pounds of American steel, will include the laying of 490,000 ties and transporting 2.35 million tons of granite and limestone by 20,000 railcars. Additionally, approximately 2 million spikes and bolts will be hammered and put in place over the next 36 months.
