Katie Mitzner working Brightline's communications and community relations outreach for the $2.7B Orlando extension will talk about:
What is Brightline?
Why is high-speed passenger rail so important for Florida?
Update on Brightline’s Orlando extension project, expected completion late 2022.
Update on Brightline’s additional expansion plans in Las Vegas, to Tampa, to Disney.
Brightline is the first privately funded passenger rail system in America and is designed to reinvent travel and take cars off the road by connecting city pairs and congested corridors that are too close to fly and too long to drive. Providing fast, efficient, hospitality-driven transportation featuring the latest in customer-friendly amenities, Brightline currently operates in Florida between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, with plans to develop new stations in Boca Raton, Aventura and Port Miami. Construction to Orlando is underway and will be complete in late 2022. Brightline West, which will connect Las Vegas and Southern California, is shovel ready and expects to launch service in 2024.
