FCRP is lobbying for connectivity between Amtrak, commuter rail, and any high speed rail systems which would be constructed throughout the state.

Tampa's new high speed rail terminal, if constructed as presently proposed, will be built just 6 blocks from Tampa Union Station.

However, present plans include no real connection to Amtrak or any future commuter rail services which would ultimately serve Tampa Union Station.

The same "disconnected" conditions exist at Lakeland and Orlando
