Tampa Wants All Aboard Florida, Too

    We need to bring BOTH All aboard Florida and SunRail to Tampa. the I-4 corridor would be perfect for All Aboard Florida to bring its high-speed train to Tampa since station construction for intermediate stops is impractical and outside of most city centers. The CSX line, which is currently served by amtrak, would be ideal for a SunRail commuter rail extension to Tampa, since that line goes through most city centers along the way and would be ideal for a commuter service that makes frequent stops. I don't see All Aboard Florida trains making any other stops between Orlando Airport and Tampa, with maybe the exception of Walt Disney World, or an extension across a rebuilt Howard Franklin Bridge to St. Petersburg in the distant future.
