New River Railroad Bridge App August 29, 2018

Brightline launched two new resources for mariners interested in the operations of the New River railroad bridge in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The company has developed a mobile app and website to give mariners access to the latest bridge operating plan for passenger trains, which is updated in real time.

The New River Bridge app can be found in both the Android and Apple and online at These resources are updated in real time and are currently only for the movement of Brightline’s passenger trains. Mariners are strongly encouraged to hail the bridge monitor by phone, 305-889-5572, or on VHF channel 9, to receive the most up-to-date information about upcoming bridge movements.

Visit or download the GoBrightline app to view train schedules.
