Everyday the Buenos Diaz Morning Show receives amazing local guests. Today, we had a chance to invite Vanessa Alfonso from Brightline. Vanessa is the Director of Media Relations and she was one of our best guests ever. The Brightline Train is based in Downtown Miami and provides service up to West Palm Beach with future plans for Boca Raton and Orlando.
Brightline is reimagining the ride, and along the way improving the environment, the communities served, and the employees lives who make it all happen. From supporting the use of solar power to operating completely carbon-free rides, Brightline knows every choice they make has an impact. If you haven’t ridden the train yet, jump on board!
Luis Diaz loves taking the train from Miami to West Palm. It drops him very close to the Improv where he regularly performs comedy to sold out audiences. The ride home allows him to relax without getting caught up in traffic. Brightline truly is a great way to travel!
BY THE NUMBERS:
- $6 Billion in direct impact on the Florida Economy
- 2,000 + jobs!
- 72k Metric Tons — removing CO2 emissions from the atmosphere
Brightline is on-track to realize carbon free rides. Their diesel-electric locomotives run on clean biodiesel for lower emissions, helping to remove 3 million cars from roads each year. Their stations showcase FPL Solar Now Solar Tress that can power and provide shade. You’ll also find electric vehicle charging spots at each station. They conduct detailed environmental impact assessments and implement a number of mitigation strategies that help preserve the ecology and biodiversity of the areas we serve. We can clearly say that Brightline is WINNING!
