Traffic congestion is a growing concern for those who live, work and visit Central Florida. As our region continues to grow, that congestion will only get worse. Though there is no one magic bullet to solve our traffic woes, several different modes of transportation options working together - known as "intermodal" in transportation-speak - is a proven way to ease the gridlock.
That's why the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in cooperation with the federal government and local officials in Orange, Seminole, Volusia and Osceola counties and the city of Orlando, is advancing SunRail, a commuter rail transit project that will run along a 61-mile stretch of existing rail freight tracks in the four-county area.
The 31-mile first phase of SunRail will serve 12 stations, linking DeBary to Orlando. Phase II will serve 5 additional stations, north to DeLand and south to Poinciana. Service is expected to begin by 2014.
If you are a member of the public looking for information about SunRail, please feel free to visit the SunRail City Center, located at 201 N. Magnolia Avenue, Suite 101 in downtown Orlando or call the Center at 407-487-4035. SunRail public information specialists are available to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
