Brightline Trains Ends Its Affiliation With Virgin

Brightline is ditching the Virgin name after ending a licensing deal with entrepreneur Richard Branson.

A financial report released on Friday states that the higher-speed rail line that already runs between West Palm Beach and Miami will no longer use the Virgin brand and will change its name back to Brightline Trains LLC.

It notes that Virgin has no remaining affiliation with the line, its parent or affiliate.

Brightline has been stopped in its tracks since March, due to the pandemic, but plans are still in the works to expand the service to Orlando.
