Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) is planning a high speed rail service: All Aboard Florida or Brightline. The plan is for a high speed passenger service between Miami and Orlando with additional stations in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Brightline is already running trains between West Palm Beach and Miami.
All Aboard Florida is a 235-mile high-speed intercity passenger rail project. All Aboard Florida trains will operate at speeds up to 125mph at their top speed. This rail will reduce the travel time between connected cities significantly. Indian River County along with other counties have opposed this high speed rail cutting through the area in part saying that it violates parts of the National Environmental Policy Act.
It’s been a point of seemingly endless public and political discussion. Some speculated earlier this month that it could run out of money before it was built to completion. The All Aboard Florida passenger railway did not have planned stops in Indian River County, so if the project isn’t seen to fruition, it won’t negatively impact public transportation in our county.
As far as our county goes, GoLine is the Indian River County public transportation system. It has 15 fixed routes throughout Indian River County. It’s a really cool concept for transportation around the county, because there is no mandatory fee to ride GoLine. Instead, GoLine passengers are encouraged to make a donation if they can to help support the bus system.
