Brightline Plans To Connect Disney World And Miami By 2022
Brightline has been competing with Amtrak for market share in the railroad transportation services industry and has plans to expand in 2022, according to Business Insider.
Brightline is transforming into Virgin Trains USA later this year as it continues its expansion. The company has been targeting areas that are "too short to fly, too long to drive," and has designated south Florida as the perfect location for railway travel.
The railway currently has tracks running from Miami to West Palm Beach and plans to expand the line to Orland by 2022. Furthermore, the company has been remodeling their stations to be sparkling and dazzling with top investor Wes Edens saying, "I want to build a train station people want to get married in."
Edens has also looked to European rail lines for motivation and reference. "These city pairs that are too short to fly but too long to drive are all over the world," he said. "In Europe, the most successful by far obviously is the London to Paris Eurostar route, but there's also Paris to Lyon, Madrid to Seville, Rome to Milan, and others."
