Whoops!

Those trying to reserve a seat on Florida's new, high-speed Brightline passenger train system had a bit of trouble Thursday.

Just hours after announcing that its service would begin Saturday, Brightline's website malfunctioned, preventing prospective passengers from booking trips on the new trains. Brightline attributed the glitch to "overwhelming excitement."

Brightline is scheduled to begin service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach this weekend.

"We have temporarily suspended booking rides where train times are displaying as 'sold out' while we work through the kinks," according to a statement on the website.
