Brightline is getting closer to finally connecting Miami with Mickey Mouse.

This week, a Brightline train pulled into Orlando International Airport for testing.

The facility is a future hub for the new Brightline route from Miami to Orlando.

Also, pending approval, Brightline plans to expand across Orlando to Tampa.

The Brightline rail line is 80% complete and spans from Miami north through Brevard County and then over to the airport in Orange County.

The timeline now is for trains to begin carrying passengers from Orlando to Miami in 2023.
