It appears they are designing a corridor service, which has grown to be pretty successful throughout California. A corridor service is essentially an intercity rail system that is designed to also cater to everyday commuters. Thus, they can be described as a hybrid between traditional long distance intercity and commuter rail. For example, All Aboard Florida plans to have trains running every hour between Orlando and Miami. At that frequency, one could easily live in a community like Cocoa and work in Orlando without having to drive their car. Locally, we have major bus routes in town still on hourly headways.
If the initial Orlando to Miami segment is successful, an extension to Jacksonville (along the FEC corridor north of Cocoa) has been mentioned by FECI as a possibility. Depending on the headways and station locations, such an extension could function like commuter rail by linking downtown Jacksonville and St. Augustine with several trains in both directions daily.
