The Brightline Experience – Southeast Florida

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Monday, June 20th, 2022 at 2:18pm.

The Brightline rail system was first launched in 2018, with service between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale before extending south to Miami, giving both residents and visitors a faster, car-free alternative for exploring all three Southeast Florida.

As you enter a Brightline station for the first time, it is noticeable that this rail experience is unique. The facilities are expansive, innovative, flooded with natural light, splashes of Brightline's yellow branding, and a fresh, citrusy scent fills the air. For pre-or post-trip cocktails, each Brightline station has a full bar.

Brightline offers two types of tickets: Smart and Premium. After going through a brief security screening, passengers can scan their tickets using a QR code on their phone, then proceed to the well-equipped waiting area prior to boarding their train. Floor-to-ceiling windows line the walls of the lounge, complete with comfortable seats and tables featuring outlets for easy access to charging devices.

Passengers with a Premium Brightline ticket can skip the bar and head straight to their exclusive lounge, where they will find a variety of light bites, coffee, soft drinks, and beer and wine on tap. On board, a Premium ticket also means being treated to a refreshing wet towel, as well as more snacks and drinks for the ride.

Though Smart ticket holders do not have access to these additional benefits, both classes offer the opportunity to sit back and relax in the wide, seats with plenty of legroom.

The flagship station in Miami features the Citizens Miami Central culinary market, which has sixteen dining concepts that include burger joints, uniquely flavored cookies, and more.
