It's about a 20 minute bus ride between Central Terminal (next to Brightline) and FLL. https://www.broward.org/BCT/Schedules/D ... rt1web.pdf

For now, Tri Rail (in the west side of the airport) and requiring a free shuttle bus is a better connection. If you're going to Downtown Miami, you'd then connect to the Metro at either the Tri Rail station (Green Line)or MIA station (Orange) to make the jump eastward.


The transfer to the FLL Brigthline station from the FLL Airport is currently too daunting in my opinion. Brightline's tracks form the eastern boundary of the airport IF there were a Brightline station at the Airprot, WHICH THERE ISNT, it would be less than 2000' from the terminal)
