Florida is on track to open America’s first High Speed Rail service in 2015. The trains first route will connect the Orlando International Airport to Downtown Tampa. “Trains are projected to reach speeds of at least 168 mph.”
The rail lines are planned to run along I-4, between the east and west bound traffic. Future lines to Miami include one to run along Florida’s Turnpike, and the other to connect Brevard Counties Shores.
Along with the Orlando Sunrail, expected to open in 2013, this will change the way Central Floridians get around. As Mayor Buddy Dyer put it, “No where in America has any area gone from basically no rail, to such a great system.”
