Brightline Seeing Revenue, Ridership Gains

The nation’s first new private passenger rail service, Florida’s Brightline, is seeing a steady increase in both riders and revenue.

Brightline, which started its South Florida service earlier this year, carried just under 75,000 passengers and had ticket revenue of $663,700 from mid-January through March, and both grew each month.  Ridership in February was just over 24,000, but that jumped to nearly 33,000 in March. Revenue was up about 35 percent in March over February.

The data come from a financial statement provided to the federal Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board required because of the company’s bond offering, and reported by TCPalm.com.

Brightline started out running between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale and then added Miami service in May. It’s been approved to continue its line northward to Orlando International Airport.
