Brightline trains are still on schedule to start running on the tracks between Miami and West Palm Beach this summer, reports WPTV.

Still, Brightline is searching for funding to finish Phase 2 of the route through the Treasure Coast to Orlando, and many Martin County residents hope that will not happen.

Martin County Senior Assistant County Attorney, Ruth Holmes, says the county backed out of a lawsuit that challenged a request made by Brightline for bonds to pay for the Treasure Coast extension.

Contrary to how that sounds, Holmes says it is actually a ‘victory’ for the concerned residents and business owners in Martin County.
