ORLANDO, Fla. — Channel 9 traffic anchor Alexa Lorenzo got an tour of Central Florida’s first Brightline train.
Bright Blue 2 is now at the vehicle maintenance facility south of Orlando International Airport.
The train is state-of-the-art and Vice President and Mechanical Engineer Tom Rutkowski couldn’t be prouder.
“This is luxury travel at its finest,” Rutkowski said.
There are outlets in every corner, free Wi-Fi, genuine leather seats that slide forward to recline, and everyone has a piece of window. Food and drinks are included too.
“Where hospitality meets transportation,” Rutkowski said.
A round trip to South Florida will likely cost you about $200 once the train is up and running.
“We’re 72% complete as of today,” said Michael Cegelis, executive vice president. “We’re making good progress.”
There are three new trains that will arrive later this year.
Construction is set to be complete this year, with a goal of carrying passengers in 2023.
