Brightline, the new privately-run passenger train service in Florida, carried its first paying passengers this past Saturday. For now, trains are only running between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. The trip takes 40 minutes on Brightline, compared to 60 minutes on nearby Tri-Rail commuter trains or as much as two hours driving in rush hour traffic. Brightline expects to extend service to downtown Miami later this year.
