This Saturday, Brightline will begin introductory service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach for $10 one-way, or $20 roundtrip.

Brightline has yet to announce regular ticket prices, but it previously said that a one-way, Miami-to-Orlando "Smart" ticket could cost about $140.

And during it all, you can gaze out the wide windows while the train cruises at 79 miles per hour. Seniors, active military personnel and veterans will receive a 10% discount, and children younger than 12 will ride for half price as part of discounted introductory fares, according to Brightline.

Brightline, the service that will eventually link Miami to Orlando, has been long awaited by the local development and tourism industries.

Brightline also shuffled its management team, promoting Patrick Goddard to president, replacing Chief Executive Dave Howard, a former sports executive who was hired in March 2017.

The initial leg of service will run between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida. "Our team will continue to ramp up operations as we prepare to fully launch this transformative new infrastructure asset for South Florida".

The news comes as Brightline launched its mobile app and new website.

"We are thrilled to have South Florida preview Brightline with the launch of introductory service", Goddard stated in a news release from the company. The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Harold Bernard Green Jr., according to the West Palm Beach Police Department. "We believe the comfort and convenience of our travel experience paired with premium hospitality will set a new standard for passenger rail service".

Brightline is expected to expand operations to MiamiCentral, the 11-acre station, in the coming months.

Construction on Phase 2 to Orlando International Airport will begin in 2018.
