The new name of downtown Miami’s transportation hud, Virgin MiamiCentral station, is unveiled by Richard Branson in downtown Miami, Florida on April 4, 2019.";

Those itching to board a Brightline train in Boca Raton may not have to wait much longer.

Brightline plans to have the station up and running right next door to the city’s library and a few blocks west of Mizner Park by the end of next year. That’s around the same time the high-speed rail line will fully convert its brand to Virgin Trains USA.
