I do not know this

I oppened the item to read about this train, as when I was last time in Miami, it was under construction. So I should not be asked to rate it.

What a way to avoid I-95!
Jan 2020
Brightline is phenomenal. Not only are the stations in Miami, Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach all impeccably maintained, modern and inviting, but the purpose of being there -- to travel by train -- is fabulous. The trains are beautiful and clean, with plenty of space and overhead shelf storage, the staff are warm and friendly, and the ride makes you wonder why you ever get on I-95 by car! I'm a repeat traveler and plan to continue.

Easy Breezy Traveling
Feb 2020
I love taking the Brightline. I take it 2-4 times a week and I love every moment. Always clean and tidy. The stations remind me of being in Europe and the staff is always so friendly! I recommend my friends and family to use it as much as they can. Its very reasonable and 10 times faster than driving and getting stuck in traffic. Kudos Richard!! Cant wait for more stops to be added up the East Coast!

My ride on bright-line
Feb 2020 • Couples
my wife and I decided to take bright-line we were going to a doctor's appointment down in South Beach Miami and instead of having to deal with all the traffic and driving 70 miles one way we decided to try bright-line. My wife in a wheelchair at the time and soon as we enter brightlines doors I felt like a red carpet was rolled out everyone was very friendly very helpful being that this was our first time ever on bright-line or 4 train at that, they helped us get to r train once we boarded and got into our seats and started to leave they came around and get drinks and snacks we did do the upgrade but it was well worth it the whole experience was amazing everybody was so friendly and helpful the ride itself was amazing again just to be able to sit back and not have to worry about driving and when we got to Miami we took an Uber and when we came back to board we had missed our original departure train and it was no big deal they helped us get on the next train back to West Palm Beach in again everybody was very helpful, they even helped me was pushing my wife out to where the cars were. I was so amazed by how Queen and how great the atmosphere was and how much brightline employees went above and beyond to help us I've never experienced anything like this in my life if you've never been on bright-line give it a try and you will be hooked as I am. I'm looking forward to taking bright-line on the 10th to go again to the doctor with my wife and taking bright-line to save the hassle of driving and driving in traffic especially down in South Miami. Thank you bright line for everything keep up the good work!

The only to travel
These trains are super clean and very nice inside and offer great luxury if you want it and a budget experience that is also extremely nice. We took this train back and forth to Miami from Fort Lauderdale and found it so much better than sitting in traffic on the freeways.

Excellent Travel from Miami to WPB
Feb 2020
Brightline offers a clean, professional, top-notch service for transportation. Only problem was having a DJ on my train car?!

I traveled on SuperBowl Sunday and for some reason they thought it was a good idea. The extremely loud group of ladies in the back of the car had to scream louder to talk above the music (at least that's why I think they were screaming). BTW, this was the upgraded (Select) ticket and I thought ppl like that would be removed to another area (DJ and all). Guessing those bottles of wine they were dragging off in the lounge might have turned up their volume.

That aside, the snacks were awesome, with a variety of croissants, mini-muffins, fruit and more. At around 11am they changed it out to chips, a variety of snack bars, fruit and added wine. The coolers were stocked with water, soft drinks and beer.

On the train, the seats were comfortable, electronic friendly and roomy. Food and drink carts offered more of same plus candy and Bento boxes. I enjoyed hummus, pita bread and Mediterranean olives, with a Bloody Mary (helped drown out noise).

The connection between the Metrorail and Brightline has to be a 'Safe-Passage' and it is NOT. Daytime not too bad but no signage to connect the 2 venues. Night time was a bit frightening. I walked right past the alley that goes to the Metrorail, without knowing. It's not a far walk, only about 1/2 a block but no signs and poorly lit. Someone needs to step-up their game. Though they may be separate entities, it was my biggest fear for the trip and clearly something to address.

Purchased regular (Smart) ticket on return and offered bottled water but seat was equally comfortable.

Overall, I will definitely do it again and looking forward to the Orlando route.

A Few Tips About Brightline Trains
Jan 2020
2019 Brightline

Our county, Martin, tried to block Brightline from coming through our community. We were part of the fight. After taking the Brightline train from West Palm Beach to Miami, we are now a proponent of the train continuation to Disney World and beyond.

Our feelings are partly due of our recent trip to the Baltic area where mass transit is a priority. Brightline reminded us of the superb train travel we found in Europe.

At the time of this writing, there was just one stop between WPB and Miami, and that was Ft. Lauderdale. Taking Brightline would be a convenient way to get to the port/airport in both Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.

We were amazed how extensive Miami Central Station has developed. There is an expanding first class “food court.”

To travel beyond, the “FREE” Metromover—Wilkie D. Ferguston-- is just across the street to take you to such areas as Bayside shops along the harbor. The port is just a short Uber/Lift ride away, and the airport is less than eight miles away.

The train did not go fast as it could. There were issues along the intersections. We did arrive on-time as scheduled.

The price could be prohibitive for some. We felt riding the train was safe and extremely comfortable. We did not have to worry about driving down in Miami and even finding a place to park could be a hassle.

Brightline does have a number of tours it offers, particularly for Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. For travelers, this would be ideal for those that don’t want to drive in the heavy South Florida traffic.

Great fun in Select class! Free parking, fully stocked lounge at both ends and plenty of refreshments on board. Smooth and spotlessly clean! Try to book the first row in first coach! Super service!
