It’s another step closer to high speed rail from Tampa to Orlando. What’s the latest?
The commission that oversees Sunrail needed to approve a deal that would share a corridor with Brightline. They voted last week.
The resolution received a unanimous 5-0 vote by SunRail’s governing body. This means that they support the Sunshine Corridor. That’s the route that will connect Tampa and Orlando.
The Sunshine Corridor will connect central Florida to the Tampa Bay area. From the east, there will be a stop at Orlando Airport, plus stops near Universal Orlando Epic Universe, the Orange County Convention Center and a stop close to Disney property.
From the west, there will be a stop at Ybor City. That location has yet to be built. The proposed high speed rail route would travel close to the I-4 corridor, also alleviating traffic on the interstate between Tampa and Orlando.
Here's the latest on commuter train SunRail's possible shared corridor with Brightline intercity train in Orlando. https://t.co/hmjBnO7cgr— Orlando Business Journal (@OBJUpdate) September 23, 2022
