“This is an exciting development,” said Mayor Buckhorn. “The possibility of connecting the two largest cities in the I-4 corridor by high-speed rail is not only a game changer but an opportunity to create bridges, not barriers for the residents, visitors, and businesses flocking to this state. From expanding the footprint of the Tampa Bay Rays to bringing Orlando’s tourists to the Gulf Coast beaches this is a project whose time has come.”
