Get where you’re going

At All Aboard Florida, we’re bringing together the best our state has to offer, while bringing Florida closer together in the process. By combining private resources and innovative design with a can-do spirit, we’ve created an express passenger rail service unlike any other in the country. All Aboard Florida is reducing congestion on our roads, cutting fuel emissions, and increasing tourism. Most important, it’s allowing vacationers, business travelers and local residents to sit back, relax, and enjoy Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Orlando and all points in-between.

Each stop is an intermodal hub, which means there are plenty of ways for you to get to your final destination from our stations. So find out more. Then get ready to get onboard.
