Brightline has announced that they will resume services beginning in November of this year.

Brightline President Patrick Goddard made the announcement during a virtual media update stating that schedules from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach will begin in the first half of November.

“We are thrilled to be gearing up to welcome guests back aboard Brightline,” Goddard said. “Over the last few months, we’ve made upgrades to our guest experience and made significant strides in construction. Our goal remains the same, to take cars off the road while offering the most convenient way to travel in South Florida and a guest-first experience.”

The Brightline discontinued services for nearly a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While services are starting up again, Goddard stated that customers can expect new protocols including COVID rules.

Brightline is also in the process of expanding and have added nearly 200 jobs in South Florida with starting wages of $18 per hour. All employees must be vaccinated.
