In addition, the station will feature self-service kiosks and touchless turnstiles into the security area, where all passengers and bags are screened before boarding.

Patrick Goddard, President at Brightline said:

“This world class train station continues our mission of transforming train travel in America. We have carefully thought through each detail of this station to ensure that it exceeds the expectations of the modern traveler.”

Passengers will access trains using escalators or elevators and will board from one of two new 1,000-foot long platforms. These platforms will accommodate trains with four cars and two locomotives that will transport passengers on the Orlando to Miami route in just over three hours.

To provide a nostalgic nod to historic train stations, the new station also includes a flip-flap message board that can rotate alphanumeric text and graphics to display train schedules, boarding times and news, along with the flip-flap sound that the first passenger train stations in America were known for.

Brightline’s Orlando station has been designed by Bigtime Design Studios, which also designed the newly opened stations in Boca Raton and Aventura.
