Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Thursday he will withhold funding for a $6.3-billion high-speed train system to have been built by an international consortium that included Irvine-based Fluor Daniel Inc. The 325-mile rail system would have connected Tampa, Orlando and Miami with trains traveling at 125 to 200 mph. Bush opposed the Florida Overland Express, known as the FOX, because of concern that it wouldn't attract enough riders to make it financially viable.

More than 1,000 commuters seeking relief from congested highways boarded a new $118-million commuter train for the 67-mile run through the densely populated region between Miami and West Palm Beach, Fla. The commuter line, known as Tri-Rail, was born as an answer to traffic problems expected during almost five years of planned construction to widen Interstate 95 between Boca Raton and Miami. But officials hope it will become popular enough to survive beyond that.
