Two more Brightline trains to arrive in West Palm Beach today

Two more Brightline trains are expected to arrive in West Palm Beach this morning, the company said.

Brightline’s BrightGreen and BrightOrange trains, named for the coloring on their passenger cars, are being pulled across the country by a locomotive. They are expected to complete the 3,052-mile journey from California this afternoon.

Two other trains have already arrived at the company’s rail facility near 15th Street in West Palm Beach.

Brightline’s 5th train, BrightRed, is expected to be shipped from California in mid-June.

Brightline plans to launch the first leg of its passenger service this summer.

The first leg will carry passengers between West Palm Beach and Miami. Eventually, Brightline plans to expand service north to Orlando.

Construction on the company’s West Palm Beach-to-Orlando leg has not yet begun. Brightline officials have said the project will take at least two years to complete.

Brightline has said it will start “pre-season” service between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale in late July. Service between West Palm Beach and Miami is expected to begin in August.

Ticket prices have not been released.

A grand opening of the rail project is planned for mid-September, the company said.
