Brightline passengers use the new MiamiCentral terminal to board the inaugural trip from Miami to West Palm Beach on May 11, 2018 in Miami, Florida. Brightline welcomed the media, politicians and other dignitaries to ride on the inaugural trip for the privately funded passenger train which is running from Miami to West Palm Beach with one stop in Fort Lauderdale.

The Tampa Bay Business Journal reports a new option for that high speed rail service to Orlando could connect with the TECO Line Streetcar system. They aren’t saying where the other 2 locations they’re looking into are yet. But it seems to make sense given that travelers could stop off in Tampa at popular areas like Ybor and Amalie Arena. The Tampa station is expected to be up and running by 2025. The trains will travel at about 125 mile an hour to get passengers to and from Orlando. [Source: TBBJ]
