Brightline opened its Orlando station Sept. 22, inviting passengers to journey along its 170-mile track into South Florida.
The new station, located inside Orlando International Airport's Intermodal Terminal Facility adjacent to Terminal C, totals 37,350 square feet and features a contemporary two-story design, a kids zone, a cocktail bar and luxury amenities.
The construction, which involved approximately 10,000 employees, spanned a total of four years.
Passengers can expect a swift three-hour journey from Orlando to Miami, as the train reaches speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. (While there's no industry standard definition, "high-speed" trains generally travel 125-155 mph, so Brightline is sometimes referred to as a "higher speed" train.)
Other destinations from this new station include West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Aventura. Tickets
are on sale now.
Here's everything we saw at the new Central Florida station, complete with amenities and plenty of Orlando-themed merch.
