Many Americans site their daily commutes to and from the office as some of the most stressful periods of their day. They may also attribute the length of their commutes as also contributing to their overall stress levels. Knowing that commuting by car is no longer an efficient model in many of this country’s major urban center, Fortress Investment Group has rolled out a new private mass transportation option called Brightline.
With its recent introduction in South Florida, Fortress Investment Group and the Brightline team are making a significant impact on the daily routines of many South Floridians. The original route is from West Palm Beach through the I95 corridor all the way down to Miami. An additional leg that has not yet been fully developed will offer service to Orlando which is situated in the middle of the state.
The Brightline service has been a huge success with commuters showing their enthusiasm for this service that provides an alternative to car travel. While it takes about 30 minutes to travel from Fort Lauderdale to Miami without traffic, that time period can be double, or more, during the morning and evening commuting hours. Relieving this daily burden and stress creator has proven quite popular with the commuters of South Florida and a worthwhile project for the principals of Fortress Investment Group.
Wes Edens, one of the co-founders of Fortress Investment Group is excited about the initial success of the Brightline model and hopes to increase the number of routes and areas served by this private train system. Mr. Edens and the Brightline team have mentioned markets in Texas, the Midwest, and North Carolina as possible areas where the system may prove successful.
The Brightline trains are top of the line in their comfort, efficiency, and level of customer care. From the free on-train wifi to the futuristic train stations, the Brightline trains are serving a need for many thousands of Americans who would rather ride in comfort than sit behind the wheel in a bottleneck of traffic. It will be interesting to see which metropolitan area Brightline goes to next.
