If you’ve been following along with us, then you know that the Brightline train from Orlando Airport is now open!
Brightline has recently opened a new route for their high-speed trains that take you from the Orlando International Airport to Miami. This convenient travel method may save you time and money as opposed to catching a flight south. We had the chance to take a ride on the train recently and we’re here to tell you why you’ll regret NOT taking it from Orlando Airport.
1. You’ll Get Stuck in Traffic
If you are heading south to Miami and want to drive, pack your patience. It’s no secret that there can be a lot of traffic on major highways in Florida like I-95 and I-4.
If you take the train, you’ll speed right past all that traffic and save time. You’ll also be a lot less stressed knowing you won’t have to worry about delays on the road.
2. Florida Roads are WILD
Yes, it’s true. Not only is there traffic to fight with on the roads, but the highways here can be chaotic. Let’s just say some take the speed limit as a suggestion down here.
Instead of relaxing and being carefree, if you drive, you’ll have to stay vigilant. Unfortunately, accidents happen, but you don’t want them to happen to you.
3. You’ll Pay Parking Fees
If you are heading down to Miami for a cruise and you’re driving, you’ll have to pay to park your car while you’re out at sea. These fees can add up! For us, the Brightline Fare was about equal to what it would have cost to park at the port for a week.
So instead of saving time, you’ll have to find somewhere to park, pay more money, and then walk to your ship.
4. You’ll Have To Take Time Off Work
On the Brightline train, you can work! There is plenty of room for your laptop or device on your tray table. There are also outlets at your seat to charge your device and there is free wifi.
If you drive down, you’ll likely have to take time off of work to go or go around your work schedule. Why not keep working while you’re riding?
5. You’ll Miss a PRIME Napping Opportunity
So if you drive to Miami, you won’t be able to nap, especially if you’re driving. But even if you’re just the passenger, who actually enjoys napping in the car? Maybe you’re the annoying passenger who loves control and you can’t be a back seat driver AND sleep.
So take the opportunity to take a power nap before arriving in Miami.
