The high-speed train service that operates between Miami and West Palm Beach announced it is suspending service “for the coming months” because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Virgin Trains USA, which was formerly known as Brightline, made an announcement on its social media platforms. The company did not say when service might resume.

“Due to CDC social distancing guidelines, mandated work-from-home policies and other considerations, it is expected to take a long period of time for service demand to return to pre-virus levels,” a Twitter post said.
