MIAMI — Brightline is now offering free rides for federal employees hit by the government shutdown.

The Florida passenger service announced the move on Friday. Federal employees who present a government-issued employee ID to agents at its West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami stations will receive complimentary rides in Smart class until the government reopens.

“The Brightline team wants to show support for all federal workers during this time and ease the cost of everyday living,” the company said in a press release.

Monday marks the 30th day of the partial shutdown, the longest in federal government history.
