ORLANDO (AP) — A privately financed company that wants to link a 240-mile train system extending from South Florida to Orlando International Airport is still trying to hash out a feasible plan.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that All Aboard Florida already has worked with Florida East Coast Railway to access tracks from Miami to Jacksonville. But the project remains without a current path to Orlando’s airport.
All Aboard Florida executive vice president Husein Cumber says talks are continuing with the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority, which has a toll road that could be a viable location for a possible train path.
The billion-dollar project could be completed by 2014 and present competition for air carriers that connect central and South Florida.
Future plans for the train call for service that would include Jacksonville.
