Milwaukee Bucks owner, Wes Edens is targeting his next major business venture following the sale of his Fortress Investments Group to Softbank. Edens has already launched the Brightline rail service between Miami and Fort Lauderdale to much acclaim as he hopes to revolutionize the transport system of the U.S. The only privately-owned rail service in the U.S., Brightline offers a luxury service far more technologically advanced than that offered by Amtrak along its limited passenger lines.
Edens has been extolling the virtues of his new passenger service in Florida as being as advanced as it is possible to be while maintaining an eye on the environmental impact of the service. One would expect Wes Edens to keep his eye on the environmental impact of the service as he is the brains behind the Edens Family Research Program on Climate Change at Princeton University. The trains operated between Miami and Fort Lauderdale run on clean biodiesel and have been designed and built in the U.S. with customer comfort the main priority. Complimentary wi-fi is available on all trains with bicycle racks adding to the green nature of the project. Edens is determined to make the project a success with tickets kept to a low-cost of between $10 and $15 for a one-way fare to encourage travelers to take the 30-minute journey by train.
Wes Edens has been a major part of the financial sector since taking his first job at the California Savings and Loan following the completion of his studies in finance at the University of Oregon. A love of sports has always been close to the heart of Wes Edens after spending much of his childhood skiing and taking part in various sporting activities. In 2014, the philanthropist purchased the NBA franchise, the Milwaukee Bucks and recently purchased a controlling stake in the English soccer team, Aston Villa. As the sporting empire of Wes Edens continues to grow, his eye for an environmentally-friendly business project remains at its best.
