Brightline today announced that its privately funded passenger-rail service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida, will begin January 13. The Sun Sentinel will be live-streaming the 30-minute trip between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Pay $10 for a one-way ticket in Smart Coach, or $15 for a more spacious seat in Select Coach.

All military, veterans and seniors will get a 10 percent discount and tickets for children under 12 years of age are 50 percent off. Trains will eventually travel between Orlando and Miami, but a date for the Orlando leg of the service hasn't been determined. The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Harold Bernard Green Jr., according to the West Palm Beach Police Department. On Monday the first train leaves West Palm Beach at 6 a.m.

Over the past month, the company has been operating simulated service to prepare for operational readiness.

"We believe the comfort and convenience of our travel experience paired with premium hospitality will set a new standard for passenger rail service", said Brightline's president and COO, Patrick Goddard, in a statement.

Brightline operates on Florida East Coast Railway infrastructure, upgraded to permit 79 miles per hour operation on the 67-mile section between Miami and West Palm Beach.

Head to Brightline's website to snag tickets, and to see the schedule.

"We are thrilled to have South Florida preview Brightline with the launch of introductory service", Goddard stated in a news release from the company. Officials tell local news outlets the company will make 10 round trips daily and nine trips on weekends.

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

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