SunRail’s Southern Expansion is Connecting Communities – Tupperware Station Community Train Tour Event this Saturday

Osceola County – Mark your calendars for this Saturday, June 16, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., as the SunRail train tour pulls in to the Tupperware Station located at 3205 Orange Ave., Kissimmee. It’s expected to be a big draw. The last open house at the Poinciana Station in May drew an estimated 2,500 people. New service is scheduled to open later this summer, and the train tours provide prospective riders with a taste of what SunRail offers, including information about its 17-mile southern expansion. Connectivity information is also available as LYNX representatives are attending as well.

SunRail is moving people throughout the region by providing work and leisure opportunities; connecting communities. The expansion adds four new stations; Meadow Woods in Orange County as well as stations at Tupperware, downtown Kissimmee and Poinciana in Osceola County, with Poinciana Station as the southern terminus. SunRail can make the daily commute fast, easy and affordable, as well as less stressful.
