Will East Coast Railway Finally Kick Off A Public Transportation Boom in So Fla?

Last week I wrote a blog about Miami Metrorail’s link to MIA and how much farther we have to go to have a great rail system in Miami.  Well, it looks like we may be another step closer towards making that a reality.  Florida East Coast Railway is proposing building a station, modeled after London’s Paddington railway station, on a site it owns along NW First Avenue.  The station would be the starting/ending hub for a passenger rail line connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando with a goal of 3 hours from Miami to Orlando.
Would you ride it?
