Virgin Trains USA Not Restarting Service Yet
"Virgin Trains USA said Wednesday that it won’t restart its fledgling railroad service in Florida for months, even as the state begins reopening and mass transit reemerges from the coronavirus shutdown in other parts of the country," reports Jonathan Levin.
In the meantime, the company says it is focusing on "construction to Orlando and the development of new stations in Boca Raton, Aventura and PortMiami," according to Levin.
Service on the Miami-to-West Palm Beach route has been suspended since March, shortly before Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a stay-at-home order. For a comparison, Amtrak is planning to restart Acela service on the Northeast Corridor on June 1.
