Brightline train

What is Brightline?

Brightline is a private intercity railroad in the United States, bridging the distance between Orlando and Miami with its newly completed route in 2023. The rail line transports passengers over 200 miles between these major Florida cities up and down the state’s eastern coast. Riding the train from downtown Miami to the Orlando International Airport’s Terminal C station takes about 3.5 hours at speeds between 79 and 125mph. Brightline provides a faster, less congested alternative to driving and a more cost-effective option than flying, with one-way SMART Fares starting at $79.

Where Does Brightline Service?

Brightline connects Miami and Orlando with stops in Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and West Palm Beach. Plans to extend service to Stuart, Cocoa, and Tampa Bay are on the horizon, promising even greater connectivity across the state.

Who Benefits From Brightline?

Brightline is especially advantageous for families and groups of four to sixteen people, offering significant discounts that make travel affordable and enjoyable. With special rates for children and large groups, Brightline caters to local commuters, vacationers, environmentally-conscious travelers, and cruisers seeking efficient transit between cities and airports.

Can Cruisers Use Brightline to Reach Port Canaveral?

No, there is no direct train service to Port Canaveral. However, cruisers riding the Brightline to Orlando (MCO) can easily add direct airport shuttle transportation services to Port Canaveral with Go Port.

Our Port Canaveral shuttle services eliminate the hassle of coordinating additional transportation once you have arrived at the Orlando Brightline station. Instead, prearrange and save a seat with Go Port and enjoy a seamless, relaxing ride to your cruise ship, free from the inconvenience of multiple stops, vehicle changes, or double luggage handling.

Go Port offers transportation from the Orlando Airport to all cruise terminals at Port Canaveral, including Royal Caribbean, Carnival, MCS, Norwegian, Disney, Princes, and Celebrity Cruises.

Why Go Port?

Go Port is more than just another shuttle service. We are the recognized leader in cruise transportation, servicing all the cruise lines at Port Canaveral, with direct routes to and from the Orlando Airport. Our luxury coaches, expert drivers, luggage assistance, and friendly staff on the ground to check you in and have you boarded on the next departing coach, ensure the quickest and most relaxing start to your cruise vacation.

Other Transportation Options:

While there are other transportation options available from the Brightline station at MCO, such as rental cars, taxis, and rideshare services, they often cause additional stress. The hassle of navigating rental car lines and policies, the unpredictability of taxi rates, and surge pricing in rideshare apps can introduce unexpected expenses and complexities to your travel plans. Additionally, fitting your luggage into smaller vehicles can become a challenge, especially for larger groups or those with multiple pieces of luggage. These alternatives often lack the direct, dedicated service to cruise terminals, potentially leading to longer travel times and the inconvenience of managing luggage through multiple stages of the trip.

Here’s Why Go Port Stands Out:

  • Direct Service: Transportation straight from Brightline’s Orlando station to Port Canaveral. No detours, no stress, no missing your ship. 
  • Affordable Rates: At just $29.99 per person, Go Port offers premium service for a great value.
  • Luxury Coaches: Travel in air-conditioned comfort with premium amenities, plenty of luggage space, and spacious seating.
  • Luggage Assistance: Go Port offers luggage handling services, ensuring that all your bags are taken care of from the moment you board the coach until you reach your Port Canaveral cruise terminal.
  • Hassle-Free Booking: An easy and convenient booking process allows travelers to prearrange their transportation in advance and enjoy peace of mind.
  • Reliable and Punctual: With a reputation for reliability, Go Port ensures that travelers reach their destination on time, aligning perfectly with their cruise schedule.
  • Experienced Drivers: Professional and courteous drivers knowledgeable about the Port Canaveral cruise terminals ensure a smooth and safe ride to your cruise.
  • Seamless Experience: From your Brightline stop in Orlando to Port Canaveral, Go Port offers a seamless experience, allowing travelers to start their cruise vacation stress-free.
