SunRail Announcing New Schedule for Southern Expansion
New Schedule is Connecting Communities
Sanford – SunRail is announcing a new schedule for its upcoming southern expansion. The expansion adds four new stations; Meadow Woods in Orange County as well as stations at Tupperware, downtown Kissimmee and Poinciana in Osceola County. Two major benchmarks are occurring during the next few weeks.
On Monday, July 30, service expands to the four new stations covering 17 additional miles.
On Monday, July 23, the week before the new service begins, SunRail trains start running a new schedule on the existing 32 miles, as a preview of what’s to come in the southern expansion. Trains are also running the additional 17 miles during that week, but no passengers are going to be on board during that portion of the route.
The new schedule features more mid-day time slots, as well as running later at night. Service is increasing from the current 18 round trips per day, to 20 round trips per day. SunRail is moving people throughout the region by providing work and leisure opportunities; connecting communities. SunRail can make the daily commute fast, easy and affordable, as well as less stressful.
The new schedule is posted at www.sunrail.com. It is also being distributed at SunRail’s open houses, including the one at the Meadow Woods Station in southern Orange County, and at an event in downtown Kissimmee.
SunRail currently runs 32-mile daily service, stopping at 12 stations, Monday through Friday, from the DeBary Station in Volusia County to the Sand Lake Road Station south of Orlando.
