Additional Ways We Are Following In Henry Flagler's Tracks

Stopping Points

Henry-FlaglerThough the entire All Aboard Florida Route runs from Miami to Orlando and vice versa, there is the additional option for passengers to embark or disembark in either of the two stops along the way: Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Those who travel via All Aboard Florida’s higher-speed rail will remove up to 3 million cars and trucks from the roads annually, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fuel usage, not to mention the stress that can come with negotiating traffic.

What’s more, the train stations at each of the four stopping points will be in close proximity to shopping, restaurants, hotels and attractions via additional means of public transportation. All Aboard Florida not only takes passengers into Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando, but to each of these cities’ featured neighborhoods and attractions as well.

Affordable and Convenient

All Aboard Florida passengers will find the pricing for travel between Orlando, West Palm Beach, and Miami very affordable.

All Aboard Florida’s schedule is convenient, too. Sixteen trains will run both northbound and southbound daily, with service beginning early in the mornings and running into the evenings. This schedule saves travelers 25 – 30% of their valuable time in comparison to existing travel options such as flying and driving. All Aboard Florida passengers can easily breakfast in Miami, lunch in Orlando, toast happy hour in West Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale and be back on South Beach in time for dinner, without the hassle of driving and traffic.

If Henry Flagler is known as the “Inventor of Modern Florida,” All Aboard Florida will certainly be known as the steward of carrying his vision into the state’s future.
