TAMPA, Fla. — The drive from Orlando to Tampa takes only 90 minutes or so. Despite the distance, the administration of President Barack Obama awarded Florida $1.25 billion in stimulus money to link the cities with a fast train to help kick off its efforts to bring high-speed rail service to the United States.
