Rode on Brightline, Florida’s New High-Speed Train. Ticket Is Pricey but Worth It.


Florida’s new 125-mph high-speed train started running between Orlando and Miami in September.
Brightlight’s 235-mile rail line connects the two cities in about three and a half hours.
I think the train is pricey, but I’m happy Florida finally has another transportation option.

As a born and raised Floridian who also went to college in the state, I was always dependent on a car to get around.
However, the Sunshine State now has a high-speed rail system along the East Coast called Brightline. Albeit still slow compared to some international trains I’ve been on this year, I’ve been eager to try out Florida’s new 125-mph rail connection.
Here’s what my ride was like between Orlando and Miami.
