SunRail New Schedule Begins Next Week
New Schedule is Connecting Communities
Sanford SunRail begins running service on a new schedule beginning Monday, July 23. 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 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. The new schedule is posted at www.sunrail.com.
The new schedule comes in advance of the new southern expansion which begins passenger service on July 30. The expansion adds 17 more miles and four new stations; Meadow Woods in Orange County, as well as stations at Tupperware, downtown Kissimmee and Poinciana in Osceola County.
Trains will travel to the new additional stations next week as part of the break-in period, but no passengers are going to be on board during that portion of the route.
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.
