Virgin Trains USA is what we used to know as “Brightline Trains.” On Jue 6th, Virgin Trains USA’s VP of Government Affairs Rusty Roberts will be at the next monthly meeting of the Republican Club of Indian River County at the Grand Harbor Golf & Beach Club in Vero Beach. The purpose? To discuss the passenger rail. See, Virgin Trains secured funding to extend its route to Orlando from West Palm Beach with 40 miles of new tracks. The high-speed passenger rail can reach speeds of 125 mph. Virgin Trains, owned and operated by Fortress Investment Group and is a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), where it first ran under the name, “All Aboard Florida.” The track is expected to be finished in 2022. It will be the only high-speed, private passenger rail operating in the United States.
The new rail is expected to create 10,000 new jobs and bring in over $650 million in federal, state and local tax revenue. Many in Indian River County have opposed the high-speed rail. To hear from the company, RSVP with the Republican Club of Indian River. For $35 as a starting ticket price, guests will be served a full dinner at the Grand Harbor Golf & Beach Club in Vero Beach. Doors will open at five o’clock in the evening and the meeting will start at six o’clock.
