Brightline+ was officially unveiled on October 26 by Brightline President Patrick Goddard, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and Miami-Dade County’s Assistant Director for the Department of Transportation and Public Works Carlos Cruz-Casas.
This exciting addition to Brightline’s services will allow passengers to book and pay for their entire journey across a variety of eco-friendly modes of transportation all through the Brightline App. Brightline’s fleet of vehicles includes Tesla’s, shared electric vans, and Circuit neighborhood electric vehicles, which are fully electric shared shuttles.
These Brightline+ vehicles will be operated by Brightline trained private chauffeurs. Brightline has worked in conjunction with Via, a global leader in TransitTech.
“As an innovator at the intersection of transportation and technology, Brightline is leading the future of high-speed rail in America and transforming the end-to-end mobility experience for riders with a service that will be unlike anything offered in North America,” said Patrick Goddard, President of Brightline.
Brightline+ is set to roll out in phases. Beginning in November, customers will be able to book their transportation from the moment the train journey ends to their final destination. Slated for December, riders will experience the full door-to-door service from their original location all the way until their final destination.
Throughout the rest of 2021, customers looking to ride in shared vehicles will be complimentary and private vehicles will have a fee of $10 per each segment used.
Following this exciting expansion for the business, Brightline will become North America’s most integrated method of planning and ticketing application.
