All Aboard Florida

All Aboard Florida’s high speed rail connection is under construction at the Orlando International Airport. All Aboard Florida is a multi-billion dollar passenger rail system spanning from Miami to Orlando with stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. By 2017, it will whisk between these cities at up to 125mph.

Their Orlando station is part of a $1.1 billion dollar intermodal terminal that allows seamless transfers with Sunrail, Orlando’s commuter rail system. With walk on bicycle service for both Sunrail and All Aboard Florida, one could easily bring their bike and save on transportation. Infrastructure like this makes cycling more feasible for last-mile connections in longer distance trips. Similar high speed rail investments are being built or planned in Texas and California.
