IN RECENT NEWS, BRIGHTLINE HAS BEEN ASKING TREASURE AND SPACE COAST COUNTIES FOR ADDITIONAL STOPS. However, by adding more stations, Brightline's promise to get passengers from West Palm Beach to Orlando in less than two hours will be compromised. Their solution: "catch a train."

This idea suggests that passengers will exit and board a moving train, stating it would be "just like the way you get on the Haunted Mansion ride at Walt Disney World."

Except these trains will be going at top speeds of 110 mph; that's twenty times the speed of the Haunted Mansion ride. Also, that ride can be stopped quickly if an individual doesn't get in or off the ride successfully.
