$214 Million Automated People Mover Complex at Orlando International Airport
The state will put $214 million into construction of the Automated People Mover Complex at Orlando International Airport, Gov. Rick Scott announced this week, connecting the airport and a future rail terminal where All Aboard Florida passengers will alight.
All Aboard Florida, the proposed express passenger railroad running between Miami and Orlando with stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, is expected to begin operations by early 2016. Florida East Coast Industries executives assert that ticket prices will be competitive with air travel and the trip will take three hours.
Potentially, it will get 3 million vehicles off the road, helping with the traffic woes of a growing population and ever increasing tourists. In 2013, nearly 95 million people took a vacation or business trip in Florida.
