ORLANDO, Fla. — Editor’s note: This story is available as a result of a content partnership between WFTV and the Orlando Business Journal.
Brightline President Patrick Goddard said the No. 1 question he gets asked by train riders is when will the Orlando-to-West Palm Beach route debut.
There’s been a lot of excitement from riders on the existing intercity rail corridor in South Florida over the 170-mile expansion to Central Florida, which is expected to start service by the end of June.
In the long-term, the Miami-based company expects as much as 60% of its ridership on the Orlando route to originate from South Florida, as the company has “warmed up the market” there for the service, Goddard told Orlando Business Journal.
