Transportation

With 68 million visitors a year, Orlando has perfected the art of getting to and from here and is easily accessible to the entire globe. The region is home to three international airports, including Orlando International Airport which is the third largest origin and destination airport in the U.S.

Port Canaveral and the Atlantic Ocean are within a 45 minute-drive and the Port of Tampa on the Gulf of Mexico is only an hour away, putting European, North American and South American markets at our gateway.

On land, the region sits at the crossroads of Florida's highway network, serving as a hub for distribution. SunRail, the region's commuter rail system, runs 31 miles from Volusia to Orange County and will eventually connect 61 miles into Osceola County. Also forthcoming is the All Aboard Florida train connecting Miami to Orlando. All of that connectivity is invaluable for business.

Current or upcoming transportation infrastructure investments include:

  • $2.3 billion in I-4 Ultimate, an overhaul of Interstate 4 which connects the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean;
  • $2.2 billion express train connecting Orlando to Miami called Brightline by All Aboard Florida;
  • $1.8 billion expansion at Orlando International Airport;
  • $44 million expansion at Orlando Sanford International Airport;
  • $1.6 billion creation of the Wekiva Parkway, completing Orlando’s beltway system;
  • $650 million expansion at Port Canaveral; and
  • $615 million investment in the region’s commuter rail system, SunRail.
