  • Florida's Brightline train starts service to Ft. Lauderdale this weekend

Brightline today announced that its privately funded passenger-rail service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida, will begin January 13.

The Brightline train is about to leave the station.

Brightline - the country's only privately owned and operated passenger railroad - on Thursday announced its long-awaited start date as well as ticket prices and schedules for limited, introductory service.

Brightline has yet to announce regular ticket prices, but it previously said that a one-way, Miami-to-Orlando "Smart" ticket could cost about $140. Seniors, active military and veterans will receive a 10 percent pricing discount, and kids 12 years old and under will receive a 50 percent pricing discount.

The initial leg of service will run between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida.

The introductory service will have 10 daily roundtrips during the weekdays and nine on the weekends. Eventually, the number of trips will expand once the Miami and Orlando stations open, but no timetable has been given for that. It has been running a simulated service since December, with 10 round trips between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

In West Palm Beach, All Aboard is also building a 275-unit apartment complex next to the station. For more than a year, Goddard has been instrumental in leading the operations team in preparation of the service launch.

Brightline President Patrick Goddard on Thursday hailed the launch of Brightline as a "transformative" moment for South Florida.

Brightline has also launched its mobile app and unveiled a new website, making it easy for guests to seamlessly personalize and book their travel experience, check train times and ride. Construction for the Phase 2 Orlando route is expected to begin in early 2018, says All Aboard Florida.
