Miami-to-Orlando passenger rail on track
A new passenger rail service is on track to begin in 2015, whisking travelers from Miami to Orlando, while offering hourly trains, gourmet meals and Wi-Fi. The $1 billion project will generate about 1,200 construction jobs and 400 permanent jobs - as well as some inconveniences for motorists.

When are politicians gonna stop playing with train sets?
Tri-Rail is a failure, has never turned a profit and has run in the red since it's inception. It never will make money because those behind these projects skew the ridership numbers to make it seem like a good idea.
AmTrak already runs from Miami to Orlando. Wanna ride the train? Call them. They have decades of experience in what works and what doesn't. That's why they only run one train a day on that corridor. Heck, they run in the red as well and need tax dollars to keep them afloat so why would this project be financially self sufficant?
And get the tag line 'It will create jobs'. Bullshit. Only temporary construction jobs from out of state workers and a few train employees. How many jobs did Tri-Rail create? Not many and our tax dollars are paying them.
