There was originally supposed to be a train station at Disney Springs that would connect to the airport, but the project was canceled earlier this year. However, the train is still happening, its station will just be in a different location. We recently gave you an update on the station at the airport, and now, we know more about the train testing.

Brightline has successfully completed its most recent high-speed trains test in Florida, according to Orlando Business Journal.


The trains ran up to 79 miles per hour through northern Brevard County 20 different times in November. And, the trains reached speeds of 110 miles per hour on test runs through Martin and St. Lucie counties in Florida back on October 21st.

Right now, in South Florida, Brightline trains go up to 80 miles per hour. There are 17 trains per day that run in each direction from Miami and West Palm Beach.


In the future, stations are expected in Orlando and Tampa. The train could have a huge impact on travel, as there are already hundreds of thousands of car trips happening each day between the two cities.
