Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the new Brightline

train system in Florida.

Right now it goes from Miami straight to Fort Lauderdale and then to Palm Beach.

I took it between Fort Lauderdale and Miami and it was a quick 30 minute ride — no traffic yay!

The trains are modern and sleek, and the stations were automated, clean, secured with guards and scanners, and had a beautiful lounge waiting area (and they announce the train arrival like 10 minutes before it arrives).

Also, the staff was friendly and helpful, and they even came around with a food cart.

I understand they are adding additional stops for Aventura and Boca Raton.

I would definitely take this train again — way to go! ;-)
