Brightline’s Newly Completed Orlando Rail Terminal (Video)June 20, 2018
The Orlando International Airport Intermodal Terminal, which includes the Brightline station, was completed in late 2017 at a cost of $684 million.
In addition to Brightline, the facility has platform space for Sunrail, a commuter rail line that could soon be extended to the airport. Another train service to Orlando’s International Drive area may also be added later (Hyperloop One). The facility also has 2,400 parking spaces.
An automated people mover system was also completed last year, allowing passengers to quickly connect to the airport’s air terminals.
Brightline still needs to complete double tracking between West Palm Beach and Cocoa Beach, and build new tracks from Cocoa Beach to the airport.
Passengers from Miami will arrive at the Orlando facility in about 3 hours, after traveling at speeds of up to 125 miles per hour. Completion is expected in 2021.
