Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Jr. applauds efforts to further expand transportation options into PortMiami

MIAMI-DADE – The Tourism and Ports Committee on February 13, 2019 approved a resolution sponsored by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, who chairs the committee, to evaluate the feasibility of expanding Virgin Trains USA (Brightline) passenger rail service into PortMiami.

“I applaud Committee Chairwoman Sosa and my colleagues on the Tourism and Ports Committee in supporting transportation efforts that are integral to the economic growth of PortMiami and Miami-Dade County,” said Commissioner Esteban Bovo Jr. “This is a positive step in delivering enhanced transportation methods. I hope that moving forward we continue to grow other transit entities, such as Tri-Rail, to further expand service in our County and possibly PortMiami.”
