Port Canaveral Commissioning Rail Study Related to All Aboard Florida, Orlando Airport

Port Canaveral expects to see passenger traffic double within four to five years, and that’s why it is commissioning a study on what it will take for statewide rail to find a stop at the cruise terminals.

During a Canaveral Port Authority Commission meeting on Oct. 29, Port Canaveral CEO John Walsh updated the authority on port business that included the study. In his description, Walsh said the port is communicating with Orlando International Airport and All Aboard Florida to see how cruise passengers traveling into Central Florida can avoid the road way for “greener alternatives” like rail.

The study also will look into what the port will need to accommodate rail, which could include determining the land and size of a facility needed for rail.
