Brown Bag Lunch: Brightline's Vision for Train Travel
Speaker: Ben Porritt, Senior VP of Corporate Affairs, Brightline
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this event. You can watch the video here and learn about Brightline’s vision when it comes to train travel in America. Launched in 2018 in Florida, Brightline was designed to take cars off the road and offer millions of travelers an eco-friendly way to move between the nation’s most visited city pairs. They feature frequent, comfortable, modern trains and are the first privately-held intercity passenger railroad in the U.S. in nearly 40 years.
With their success in Florida, Brighline plans to take their approach to other regions. The first of which is a project called Brightline West, a proposed high-speed rail route between Las Vegas and Southern California. The line’s fully electric, zero emissions, 200 mph trains will transform travel in the region.
