Factor in check-in and security, and even short flights end up taking hours of travel time these days—not to mention the hassles of waiting in busy airports. Now, there’s a less stressful alternative for meetings, incentives and post trips in the Sunshine State. The eagerly awaited Brightline train service between Orlando and South Florida stations is starting late summer. Service will include 16 daily round trips on a 5-train fleet, with hourly departures between Miami and Orlando. Regular service from Orlando to Miami will stop at all South Florida Brightline stations including West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Aventura. Tickets for travel through early 2024 are now on sale.

Brightline welcomes small and large groups—planners can even reserve an entire train. Group travel perks at Brightline for Business include a custom portal to manage bookings, fee-free ticket changes, fast and free WiFi and in-station conference rooms.

Expected to break ground in late 2023 and debut in 2027, Brightline West will connect Los Angeles and Las Vegas with all-electric, emission free high speed train service that cuts driving time between the two cities in half. Recent labor agreements with construction trade unions in Nevada and California and government support for federal funding has helped turn the roughly $10 billion investment into reality.

At speeds of up to 186 miles per hour, trains between Las Vegas and the Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. station will take in 2 hours and 10 minutes. Here, passengers can connect to Southern California’s regional Metrolink service into downtown Los Angeles and beyond. Additional Brightline stations on the 218 mile route will be in Apple Valley, Calif. and Hesperia, Calif.
