ORLANDO, Fla. — Director of Public Affairs, Katie Mitzner, says more than 7 billion hours of construction so far have the project at about 90% complete.

“Our station will be completed in the next month. Our vehicle maintenance facility where we are today has been completed and will be opening soon, and so as we hit all of these milestones, we’re now getting ready to complete the corridor and then the next step is testing,” Mitzner said.

Trains will be tested along the beachline at speeds up to 125 miles an hour.

“We want people to aware. You’re going to start to see trains, pay attention to the road, we’re going to do our job over there and get operational to Orlando,” Mitzner said.

When it’s all said and done, Brightline will have 10 trains going from Orlando to Miami. Each of them will be named by a color.

“We have five stations, Miami, Aventura, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca, and West Palm, so we have five trains that service South Florida. We’ve ordered five additional trains, four of them have been delivered to Florida,” Mitzner said.

The last one, “Bright Orange 2,” will be delivered this week.

Brightline will offer two classes of service: premium and smart.

There will also be dedicated parking spots for Brightline riders in the terminal C parking deck.
