Here is a link to a test train passing through downtown Fort Lauderdale. We had better get used to seeing these trains on this ROW. Sure looks encouraging.

PS - The large structure just beyond the train and next to the tracks is the Broward Central Bus Terminal where a large number of city buses operate out of, talk about convenience, this helps. Tri-Rail runs a free bus between this location and the Tri-Rail station west on Broward Blvd., just show your ticket or easy card and are good to go.
You might not even have to show a ticket on this free bus, it just runs between these locations and connects with all Tri-Rail trains.

The TCPalm papers created an online poll to see if anybody would ride the Brightline...if there was a station in Fort Pierce. Currently running 3:1 against. The poll is not scientific. You can vote as many times as you like. Some of the comments are venomous.

WAAAY off topic (beyond possibly an AAF traffic source), the opening credits for the HoBO series "Ballers" includes a clip of the stadium in its current incarnation.
