Brightline has begun their daily qualifying runs for their expansion up into the Orlando area.

The runs began on Tuesday and will run through the remainder of the year:

“These qualifying runs will operate daily, one round trip a day to start,” said Katie Mitzner, the director of public affairs for Brightline. “We’re starting with having three of our crew members trained on this corridor and once they’re trained, which will take a couple of weeks, they will start training our additional crew members.”

The $2.7 Billion project is reportedly about 70% completed and now runs from Miami up into Brevard County.

“We are expecting to reach substantial completion on the Orlando extension, which is a 168-mile corridor, by the end of this year and start carrying passengers in 2023,” Mitzner said.
