New Brightline+ Offers Door to Door Transportation in South Florida
The Brightline train is back and better than ever thanks to a new door to door transportation service the company is calling Brightline+. Through a mobile app, travelers will be able to get where they need to go around South Florida via the train as well as a fully electric Brightline-branded fleet of vehicles.
With stations in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the train is a great option for cruisers who want to enjoy a pre-cruise stay in South Florida or if you fly into a different city than your embarkation port. The train will soon connect with Orlando and Tampa as well, meaning Florida is set to be more accessible than ever before.
“As a company that is transforming the state of high-speed rail in America, Brightline continues to innovate around the passenger experience, and our new Brightline+ is indicative of this commitment,” said Patrick Goddard, president of Brightline. “With Brightline+, we are enabling riders to book door-to-door transportation in a seamless, unprecedented manner, making Brightline the most integrated multimodal train experience in North America.”
How Does Brightline+ Work?
If you’re within a 5-mile radius of any Brightline station, simply open the app or the Brightline website and book your ride at least two hours in advance of a scheduled departure. Riders will receive a real-time arrival estimate provided the day of purchase and journey tracking throughout. Brightline will also provide walk-up shuttles to Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale’s beaches, Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, all synchronized with train arrivals.
The Brightline+ fleet includes Tesla cars, shared electric vans, and Circuit neighborhood electric vehicles and the company has stated their full fleet will be entirely electric by the end of 2022.
