High-speed passenger-rail provider Brightline today announced that its service to Orlando International Airport will begin Sept. 22.

The launch means Brightline will provide rail service between Orlando and the following cities in South Florida: Miami, Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach.

"Opening Orlando fulfills our ultimate business model. We have seen incredible enthusiasm from the business and tourism industries eager to travel between Central and South Florida," said Brightline President Patrick Goddard in a press release.

In Orlando, transportation and mobility options will cater to the needs of the Orlando visitor through Brightline+ products available to book directly through the Brightline app and website. In South Florida, Brightline’s stations are within walking distance of major attractions.

Brightline is the only private, for-profit company that provides high-speed intercity passenger rail in the United States. The company has plans to bring its service to additional city pairs and congested corridors across the country that are too close to fly and too long to drive, with immediate plans to connect Las Vegas to Southern California.
