No Service Resumption Date for Brightline

Brightline still has not indicated when it plans to resume operations in Florida.

The intercity rail passenger carrier suspended operations in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic on its line between Miami and West Palm Beach.

A company spokesman said Brightline managers are “evaluating a number of factors” to determine when to resume operating trains.

Such things as falling levels of tourism, the lack of sporting and entertainment events drawing crowds, decreased business travel, and the shutdown of the cruise-ship industry sent Brightline ridership plunging.

The carrier suspended service on March 26 and laid off 262 workers.
