Anti-rail group to hold town hall meetings about All Aboard’s Brightline

Posted on November 15, 2016

The citizen’s group opposing All Aboard’s Brightline passenger train service will hold two town hall meetings this week to discuss the project.

Citizens Against Rail Expansion in Florida, also known as C.A.R.E. FL, said the meetings are designed to provide residents with an update on efforts to block the rail project.

Construction on the first phase of Brightline’s service, which includes three stations and track work between Miami and West Palm Beach, is well underway.

Brightline plans to eventually run 32 trains a day between Miami and Orlando with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

The second phase of the track work, which runs between West Palm Beach and Orlando, has not yet begun.

CARE FL’s  meetings will be held in Stuart and Jupiter. Speakers include: Attorney Stephen Ryan; Brent Hanlon, CARE FL Steering Committee Chairman; and Robert Crandall, former president and CEO of American Airlines.
