Mini Review of the Miami #Brightline train service on Instagram - Part 1
Disclaimer: This was a private vacation experiment, see request for (real) comments at the end. Probably part 3 due to size restrictions. :: Miami Central
In the middle of Miami downtown there a surprisingly modern train station called Miami Central. The service brings you every hour (Weekend: every two hours) to West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale downtown. The service is en par if not even higher than most European offerings. If you know the state of US railroads: that’s almost unbelievable. The price structure is good. Last minute tickets cost 10 US$. Regular pricing seems to be around 15-20 bucks. The Select service (first class) is around 25 US$. Add another 10 US$ for the entire trip to West Palm Beach. I am an avid #trainspotter, so I tried both: Select and Smart. But only to Fort Lauderdale.
The Brightline station Miami Central is a multi modal stop partly still under construction. Already in service is the adjacent old Metro Rail (a subway like system above ground) station as well as the free Metro Mover, an AGT or people mover system throughout downtown. Metro rail brings you to a shopping center in the south and the airport to the west. Pretty convenient for an US city. A dedicated
#lyft pickup location is available just outside. Soon Miami Central will also be a stop for Tri Rail, a mid distance train service for commuters. Miami Central will also be a place to live, to shop or to work. Just like many train stations in Asia. :: Before You Board to Fort Lauderdale “It’s just like an airport” is what a soon to be passenger said around me. And indeed, it does feel like that. A large, modern, clean and bright entry hall greets you. You can buy your ticket either at modern TVMs or at staffed counters. With your ticket you can go upstairs to the security checkpoint, that ckecks nothing but your bag.
