Fortress Investment Group is expectant for the partnership to amplify Brightline’s growth potential and offer support to its plans of expanding the commuter services to other new states. Virgin Group is a well-established company made of sixty companies in various sectors including Virgin Trains, which is a commuter train company in the UK.
