All Aboard Florida
Linking Miami to Orlando by 2015 will cost nearly a billion dollars, but none of that is coming out of the state's pocket. All Aboard Florida has boasted the ability to shoulder the bill that would pay for travelers between the two cities to fly across the state at breakneck speeds, a link that will likely bring a massive boost to local tourism.
A billion-dollar passenger rail project, due to break ground next year, will be whisking business travelers and tourists between Miami and Orlando at top speed by some time in 2015.
Plans call for stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach on the way from Miami to Orlando International Airport with a spur line connecting the beaches of Brevard County to the system.
Cost and benefits? According to the Sun Sentinel, $1 billion, 1,600 jobs and a three-hour trip -- much quicker than you could make at the wheel of your own car.
