Train-ing

“Brightline will change Florida’s demographics and interconnectivity. We will see large population concentrations near transit stations as people will move north in search of affordable workforce housing opportunities and hop on the train to go to work anywhere in South Florida and Central Florida. Brightline will help bring both regions closer together. I wouldn’t be surprised if Central Florida and South Florida begin to act as a block in lobbying efforts to improve public transportation and affordable housing across both regions.”
