Sanford – The Florida Department of Transportation is pleased to announce that SunRail will offer Saturday service on December 3, 2016, as a fun ride to shopping, events and more. This special service is part of a pilot project and is a privately funded initiative.
On Saturday, SunRail service begins with the first train leaving southbound from the DeBary station at 1 p.m. Please visit www.sunrail.com to see the entire Saturday schedule. Major venues this weekend cover sports, performances, concerts, as well as other events throughout the area.
Due to the popularity of some train trips on past Saturdays, SunRail urges riders to get to the stations at least 30 minutes early, especially if you are purchasing tickets at the vending machines located on the platforms. If you are making LYNX bus connections, please be advised LYNX Saturday service may differ from regular weekday service. Please check the Saturday schedule at: www.golynx.com.
The last northbound train leaves the Sand Lake Road station at 10:45 p.m. and arrives in DeBary at 11:48 p.m. Regular fares apply. Future Saturday service dates are being explored.
