At the August 13 2013 Council General Membership Meeting Representatives from All Aboard Florida will present their plans for starting passenger train service from Miami to Orlando including the proposed new train station in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
- Travel time: The new passenger rail service will transport passengers between downtown Miami and Orlando in approximately three hours.
- Schedule: All Aboard Florida will offer frequent, regularly scheduled passenger service throughout the day to answer mobility needs. Service will start in the early morning with last departures in the evening. All Aboard Florida is also determining tailored schedules for special events and venues.
Neighborhoods along the train tracks are concerned about increased noise and we are all concerned about issues of safety for pedestrians, cars and emergency vehicles. Representatives from the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization will discuss plans to apply for “Quiet Zones” along the route.
