Taking the train

I’ve been commuting from Brickell to downtown Fort Lauderdale for almost two years now, and the traffic is absolutely unbearable. Our roads are so congested that they are in a state of permanent construction. The only real improvements that we can make are technological.

This is why I’ve been watching the new All Aboard Florida construction with more excitement. Every day I pass the station and dream about being able to commute back and forth without the stress of traffic, or worrying if an accident or weather will set me back hours. I’ll be able to grab a snack or coffee on board, without having to worry if I will have time to make my appointments.

It will make everybody’s life easier, and the roads safer.
