Brightline (Website), the intercity rail company connecting Central Florida to South Florida, unveiled its new Orlando station today.

The new station is located adjacent to the Orlando International Airport’s new Terminal C and is connected via a fancy walkway. The station welcomed an estimated 300 guests and members of the media to the reveal, including Orlando Mayor John Dyer and Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings.

The 37,350 SF station connects to the airport’s Parking Garage C, which will have more than 350 parking spaces designated for Brightline users and it will provide access to the other airport terminals via the automated people mover/monorail in under 5 minutes.

The terminal features a small retail hub for last-minute gifts and sundries and a bar serving hand-crafted cocktails and light bites. The Mary Mary Bar is a sit-down service area at the far end of the station with panoramic views of the train platforms.

Service is expected to begin in Summer 2023 with 16 daily round trips between Miami and Orlando. Non-stop train services are expected to run for two hours and 59 minutes. Regular service will include stops in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and Aventura, with a runtime of three hours and 30 minutes.

Ticket sales kick off in May with fares starting at $79.
