RAIL Magazine Podcast with All Aboard Florida President & COO Don Robinson

This week, your blogger spent some time chatting with All Aboard Florida President & Chief Operating Officer Don Robinson. All Aboard Florida will connect Miami and Orlando on a three-hour trip with 16 daily roundtrips each day ("every hour, on the hour, in both directions," according to Robinson) by early 2017. The effort has the potential to be the first daily scheduled intercity passenger rail service in North America operated by a private entity in more than a half century.

During the conversation, Robinson discussed the recent announcement that Siemens USA will manufacture the locomotives and railcars for the service, its rail-oriented development station projects in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, ridership potential and much more.
