Brightline laid off 250 people after announcing a temporary halt to its South Florida service because of coronavirus. Those laid off included track and local station workers, as well as Bob O’Malley, vice president of corporate development.
The Miami Herald reported that O’Malley said “I’m sad to share that I’ve been laid off from Virgin Trains USA, but still proud of our good work in Florida, California and Nevada. I’ll continue to advocate for transportation, which will be even more important in the post-pandemic recovery.”
Due to the uncertainty surrounding how long the pandemic will be a threat, Brightline did not say when service might resume.
