Ride the New Year’s Eve Rails With Brightline Special, Buy Flavors Tickets

There are dozens and dozens of New Year’s Eve events and dining specials in SoFla, and here’s a list of just some of them. With the festivities taking place from Palm Beach County down to Miami, Brightline is giving you a solution to that “But I don’t want to drive that far” problem.

After New Year’s Eve, Brightline will have two train departures going north—technically departing on Jan. 1—at 12:45 a.m. and 2 a.m.

Then its 2019 schedule also changes as of that day:

  • Weekdays:
    • Adds morning departures from West Palm Beach to Miami, at 6 a.m., 6:30 a.m., 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
    • Additional afternoon departures from Miami to West Palm Beach, at 4:40 p.m., 5:10 p.m., 5:40 p.m.
    • First train from Miami to West Palm Beach in the morning leaves at 6:40 a.m., arriving at WPB at 7:55 a.m.
    • Last train from West Palm Beach to Miami leaves at 9:30 p.m.
  • Weekends:
    • Departures every two hours from West Palm Beach starting at 8 a.m.
    • Additional trains from West Palm Beach at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.; departing trains from Miami north at 1:10 p.m. and 5:10 p.m.

All of these new hours certainly allows time and ease for you to try some new restaurants in different counties. New year, new venues!
