Traveling between south Florida’s three major cities will now be easier with the introduction of Brightline rail service between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

Brightline, Florida’s new hospitality-focused express intercity passenger rail service, began offering service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach earlier this year and will inaugurate its introductory service to Miami on May 19, 2018. The service will launch with eight northbound and eight southbound trips per day with service to Miami traveling in and out of MiamiCentral, the new 11-acre intermodal development in the heart of downtown Miami.

Brightline is launching with introductory fares, complimentary parking and is waiving added fees like checked baggage during the initial launch. Tickets in Smart Service range between $10 and $15 per segment, and tickets in Select Service range between $15 and $25 per segment.

“South Florida has a vibrant economy and unique lifestyle yet some of the nation’s worst traffic,” said Patrick Goddard, president and chief operating officer of Brightline, in press materials. “We believe that MiamiCentral will be a significant landmark in Miami for generations and Brightline will connect the state in ways that hasn’t been done before.”
