Uber and Florida's Brightline Rail team up to make getting to your destination simpler

Are you sick of figuring out your transportation from the train station to your destination? With their new alliance with Uber, South Florida's high-speed train Brightline is making things simpler for you. Using the new cooperation, customers who purchase rail tickets through the Brightline app or the company website can also reserve a private or shared Uber ride. By making sure a ride is ready for you when the train arrives at the station, this service aims to reduce wait periods.

“It is critical to our guest experience that access to our stations is convenient and seamless,” says Patrick Goddard, the president of Brightline. “This partnership meets our guests’ preferences and demands by unlocking an online fleet of vehicles to provide a door-to-door service when using Brightline.”


The train company's Brightline+ service, which provides fixed-route shuttles to transport customers from the stations to airports in Miami and Fort Lauderdale as well as locations in Miami Beach, is being expanded by the Uber agreement. According to Dmitriy Vanchugov, the head of partnerships for transit at Uber, this agreement is a step toward enhancing public transportation and increasing transportation access in South Florida.


With service between West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami, Brightline made its debut in 2018. Two additional stops in Aventura and Boca Raton were added to the rail service in December. Later in 2023, the business intends to expand its service to Orlando.


Uber has collaborated with other transportation providers before. With the launch of "Uber Charter," the firm has also introduced the ability to book limos, party buses, or coach buses directly from the app. Earlier this week, Uber partnered with JetBlue to give free ride coupons to consumers who purchase a hotel and travel package as part of a test program.


Make the most of your travel experience by booking your rail and ride together in one easy location thanks to our new cooperation. Therefore, the next time you're organizing a vacation in South Florida, think about using Brightline as your mode of transportation and utilizing the Uber connection for a door-to-door service.
