All Aboard Florida’s Brightline service to Miami kicked off this past weekend with a Welcome to the 305 Celebration at the recently completed MiamiCentral terminal. The state-of-the-art Brightline trains provide convenient service from MiamiCentral station (located steps from our 300 and 400 Biscayne developments) to downtown Fort Lauderdale in thirty minutes, and on to West Palm Beach in thirty more. Introductory service will include eight round trips between Miami and West Palm Beach on weekdays and seven on weekends. Future expansion to Orlando is planned but an opening date is yet to be announced.
