How does the train schedule work?

The train schedule is divided into three sections: morning and evening peak service, midday, and evening service. During morning and evening peak service, most trains run every 30 minutes, while trains operating during midday and nigh time service run less frequently. All times listed on the schedule are departure times. All northbound trains originate from Poinciana in Osceola County, and southbound trains originate from DeBary in Volusia County. You should always consult the schedule before going to a station to plan your trip both to and from your destination. SunRail adheres to a strict schedule and departs on time, so please be sure that you are ticketed, tapped on, and ready to board at least five minutes before the train’s scheduled departure time.

What time should I arrive at the station?

Trains do not have the flexibility to wait on latecomers.

What is the SunRail dormant/escheatment program?

It is a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) policy requiring SunRail to review and update SunRail account records periodically. Florida statute section 338.231(3)(c) requires SunRail to report and transfer the funds in this account to the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Unclaimed Property if there has been no activity for at least three years or more.

Prepaid balances over $10.00 will be transferred to the state of Florida as unclaimed property. After funds are transferred, claims may be filed using www.fltreasurehunt.gov or by contacting claimant services at the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Unclaimed Property.

What “funds” on my inactive SunCard are eligible for a refund?

Prepaid balance values will be reduced by the amount of the sales bonus received at the time of purchase. SunRail pass products that have never been activated may be eligible for a refund. SunCard fees are nonrefundable. Back to top

What does Negative List / Hotlist mean?

Negative listing / Hotlisting is the temporary deactivation of a SunCard. The Florida Department of Transportation monitors SunCard usage. Hotlisting may be the result of not tapping on and off, an outstanding negative balance due to max fare, using your account for trips that are not part of the purchased pass or running out of funds. If this happens, the SunRail account is not valid for travel. A call to Customer Service at 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411) prior to boarding is necessary and can easily resolve any concern. For more information, download this Hotlist Guide (PDF). Back to top

Can I request a refund on a SunCard that belongs to a friend or family member?

FDOT has a verification process used by the Customer Service Center to determine whether the caller is the owner of the SunCard. Customers must be able to provide this information. Back to top

How will I receive my refund and how long will it take?

Please allow up to 6 to 8 weeks for cash transactions refunded with a check and allow up to 4 to 6 weeks for credit card refunds to be processed. Back to top

Fares & Passes

How much does it cost to ride SunRail?

There is a base fare of $2.00 and an additional $1.00 charge for each county you cross. For example, if you are traveling from Sanford to Downtown Orlando, the one-way fare would be $3.00. Back to top

What are Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs)?

TVMs dispense SunCards and SunRail tickets as well as allow customers to manage their SunCards. Customers can add value using cash, credit cards, and debit cards. SunRail has ticket vending machines at each of the 16 stations. Back to top

Where can I buy a SunCard or ticket?

You can purchase a SunCard from the TVM, located at each station, using cash or all major credit cards located in each station, from our website SunRail.com, or from employers that offer SunCards. It is important to register your SunCard at accounts.sunrail.com for balance protection should the card be lost or stolen. If you are interested, please ask your employer about the availability of the Federal pre-tax assistance program. Daily one-way and round-trip tickets are available for purchase at TVMs only. Back to top

What is a SunRail ticket?

SunRail tickets are a one-time purchase for one-way or round-trip travel and are best used by occasional SunRail riders. Paper tickets may be discarded after use once the fare has been validated by tapping on and tapping off. Back to top

Can I get a refund on my unused ticket?

Due to fare policy regulations, we are unable to provide refunds for tickets. Back to top

How do I pay for my ride?

You may purchase a ticket or SunCard with a pass or stored value at a TVM or purchase a ticket or pass through the SunRail mobile application. Be sure to tap on or validate your mobile ticket before boarding the train. Back to top

Can I board the train without a ticket?

No. All passengers must have a valid ticket or pass that is tapped on or activated before boarding the train. Back to top

Does SunRail have all-day passes?

We currently do not have single-day passes that allow for multiple stops. You may purchase a SunCard with prepaid value that can be used unlimited times throughout the day. Back to top

What are the fares for children?

Children ages 6 years and under can ride SunRail for free with a paying adult (however, there is a limit of three children for each adult). Back to top

What is a SunCard?

A SunCard is a plastic, credit card-sized fare media that holds weekly/monthly/annual travel passes, and/or prepaid value, for use on SunRail. You can also use your SunCard to transfer to a LYNX or Votran feeder bus when you are connecting from the train to the bus. Simply show the bus operator your SunCard and receive one free transfer to board that bus. Learn more about SunCards at SunRail.com/fares-passes/suncards. Back to top

How do I use my SunRail card?

To tap your card, find one of three SunRail ticket validators located on each platform. If you get a green check, you are good to go! A red X, your ticket or SunCard is not accepted. Please go to a TVM to purchase a product, add value to your card, or contact the Customer Service center at 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411) for assistance. Back to top

How do SunCard passes work?

SunRail offers passes that give you the freedom to ride the train as often as you want for 7 consecutive calendar days, 30 consecutive calendar days, or 365 consecutive calendar days from when you first tap on at one of our validators to board the train. Because we currently do not operate on weekends, those days are not factored into the price of any of our pass products. For passengers who ride SunRail 4-5 days a week, our passes provide significant savings over daily tickets. Fares for passes are based on how many zones (counties) you travel through. Back to top

Can a SunCard be used on other transit systems?

No. We are working with LYNX and Votran for future compatibility. Back to top

I purchased a SunCard at a TVM. How do I register it online?

If you already have a SunRail account, simply log into your account at accounts.SunRail.com and register your new card for balance protection. You can register as many cards as you would like to with a single SunRail login, so all of the cards for your business or family can be managed in a single location.

If you do not yet have a SunRail login, just click the “register’ link from accounts.SunRail.com and follow the steps to create a log in. Once you have created your login, you will be able to register your card for balance protection. Back to top

I will not be using my SunCard anymore. Can I get a refund?

Most of SunRail’s products are non-refundable, however, SunRail does offer refunds on unused prepaid value. To obtain a refund, contact the Customer Service Center by calling 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411). The Customer Service Representative will deactivate your card so it can no longer be used. Your refund will be processed within 30 days. Please note that the 10% bonus used on your prepaid value purchase is not refundable. Your refund will be made to the original form of payment (cash payments will be refunded by check). Back to top

What do I do if I lose or damage my SunCard?

To be able to replace your SunCard, your card must be registered in our SunRail account management system to qualify for balance protection. You can purchase a replacement SunCard for $5.00 online through your account, or at any ticket vending machine located at all SunRail Stations.

Once you have received the new SunCard, please contact our Customer Service Center by calling 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411) to have your funds transferred. Back to top

What is balance protection?

When you register your SunCard online at accounts.SunRail.com or add it to the SunRail mobile app, you are automatically enrolled in balance protection. Once enrolled, if your card is ever lost or stolen, simply contact the Customer Service Center or log into your account at accounts.SunRail.com to report the loss. You will not be responsible for any use of the card after you have reported it lost or stolen. We will send you a replacement card; the cost is $5.00. If you have a pass product loaded onto your lost/stolen/damaged SunCard, you will want to purchase a replacement card as quickly as possible, as passes run for consecutive days and any days lost cannot be restored to the SunCard. Back to top

Why has my SunCard been Negative Listed / Hostlisted?

If you received an email informing you that your SunCard has been Negative Listed/Hotlisted, it is because your SunCard has fallen into a negative balance, misuse of card, or the SunCard is being used for trips that are not part of the purchased pass plan. To have a SunCard removed from the hotlist, please contact Customer Service at 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411). For additional information on Negative Listing / Hotlisting, download this Hotlist Guide (PDF). Back to top

Riding SunRail

How far does SunRail travel?

SunRail currently operates in Volusia, Seminole, Orange, and Osceola Counties in Central Florida. Our northernmost SunRail Station is located in DeBary in Volusia County, and the southernmost SunRail Station is located in Poinciana, south of Kissimmee in Osceola County. Back to top

Are the trains clean?

SunRail’s goal is to deliver safe and reliable transportation and takes the following steps to help prevent the spread of germs:

  • Every train is equipped with hand sanitizing dispensers and a restroom with handwashing sink.
  • There is a security presence onboard to provide additional rider support. Back to top

Why do customers have to “tap on and tap off” the system?

Fares on SunRail are based on the distance traveled. SunRail uses a “tap on, tap off” system to calculate the exact fare for your trip. Back to top

What happens if I do not “tap on” or “tap off”?

Tapping on and tapping off is a very important part of the SunRail fare system. It allows for charging the correct amount for fares while monitoring passenger volumes. FDOT monitors SunCard activity to ensure SunRail passengers have valid fare. Our Fare Policy requires that all passengers tap on before boarding the train and tap off at their destination station platform. If a passenger fails to follow these procedures, their SunCard is no longer valid, and the FDOT will Hotlist the SunCard. The conductor is responsible for inspecting fares on board the train, and if it is determined that a SunCard has been hotlisted or the holder has not tapped on, then he/she will have the passenger exit the train for not having paid a valid fare. Back to top

How can I arrange for large groups to travel on SunRail?

For groups of 20 or more, please complete the Group Rider Request Form. For additional support and information on advance ticket purchases, contact SunRail Customer Service at 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411). Back to top

How does the transfer system work?

SunRail works with LYNX and Votran to provide a cost-effective option for our passengers. Bus-to-rail and rail-to-bus customers can transfer from one mode of transportation to the other:

From SunRail to Bus:

  1. Pay your train fare
  2. Show LYNX/Votran operator your SunCard or one-way/round-trip ticket
  3. Receive one free transfer from the LYNX/Voltran bus operator to a feeder bus route that serves SunRail Stations

From Bus to SunRail:

  1. Pay bus fare on LYNX/Votran feeder bus route
  2. Ask operator for a free transfer to SunRail (a transfer is always required even when passengers have a bus pass)
  3. Take transfer to SunRail ticket vending machine (four at each station)
  4. Follow instructions to use a transfer on the ticket vending machine screen
  5. Swipe transfer (which is valid for 90 minutes)
  6. Pay $1.00 upgrade for crossing each county line on SunRail (if necessary)

Both LYNX and Votran buses, which provide connecting bus service to SunRail, are also equipped with onboard wheelchair lifts that are deployed by the bus operator. Each station has a designated bus boarding area which is located along an angled curb to provide easily identifiable designated boarding areas and allow independent departure/arrival of the buses. Back to top

Can I bring my pet on the train?

Pets are allowed on board SunRail, but they must be kept in an enclosed container/carrier, with the exception of service animals (see below for details on what qualifies as a service animal). Also, carriers must be kept out of the aisles and off seats. Back to top

What qualifies as a service animal?

Service animals that are individually trained to perform a specific task for the benefit of persons with disabilities are welcome on board SunRail at no additional charge. In accordance with ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. Service animals are to be kept under control at all times. SunRail personnel may require you to remove your service animal en route to/from the station premise if:

1. The animal is out of control, and you do not take effective action to control it (for example, a dog causes a significant disturbance by barking repeatedly and uncontrollably or is not housebroken) or;

2. The animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others.

All service animals must sit under the passenger’s seat or at his/her feet. Service animals are not allowed to sit in the aisles or seats. Carry-on pet guidelines are for animals for which no claim of service is made, and do not pertain to passengers traveling with service animals. Back to top

What is a service disruption bus bridge and how does it work?

A service disruption bus bridge is a temporary system of shuttle buses that is put in place when SunRail is unable to proceed with normal operations. These buses provide a “bridge” between stations and bypass the area that has caused an interruption in our service. Buses are provided by our LYNX and Votran partners and will display “SunRail Special.” They offer free transportation serving SunRail Stations where the trains are unable to travel to. Buses will serve passengers traveling northbound and southbound. The bus bridge will remain in place until train service is restored. Buses that are en route when train service is restored will complete their trip.

Our suburban stations that have bus loops allow for the buses to pull directly into the station. However, drop-off/pick-up areas are assigned when the Winter Park/Amtrak, AdventHealth, LYNX Central, Church Street, and Orlando Health/Amtrak Stations are affected. These locations are subject to change due to construction, road closings, etc. so passengers are advised to contact the SunRail Customer Service Center at 1-855-RAIL-411 (1-855-724-5411) to confirm the locations. The information will also be displayed on our website SunRail.com and at the affected stations on the message boards located on the platform.

There are two types of bus bridges

  1. Emergency bus bridges – An emergency bus bridge is implemented when SunRail is experiencing an unplanned interruption in service that prevents trains from making all station stops. Situations will vary based on the number of stations affected, time of day, type of incident, etc.
  2. Planned bus bridges – Planned bus bridges are scheduled for a specific time frame and advanced notice is provided.

An example of how a bus bridge works is as follows:

An alert is issued to passengers that a bus bridge is being implemented for passengers traveling between the AdventHealth and Sand Lake Road Stations. Buses will be dispatched by LYNX to the designated bus stop location at the AdventHealth and Sand Lake Road Stations so that buses are traveling in both directions simultaneously:

  • Buses arriving at the AdventHealth Station designated drop-off/pick-up location will provide service for all stations south of the AdventHealth Station until it reaches the Sand Lake Road Station. The bus will then continue providing northbound service if necessary.
  • Buses arriving at the Sand Lake Road Station will depart heading northbound and will provide service for all stations north until it reaches the AdventHealth drop-off/pick-up location. Passengers continuing northbound will head to the AdventHealth Station platform to catch the next train, while the buses will provide southbound service, if necessary.
  • SunRail will operate between DeBary and AdventHealth Stations according to our published schedule. Trains depart DeBary and when they arrive at the AdventHealth Station, passengers continuing southbound will exit the train and proceed to the bus bridge. The train will then “turn” at the AdventHealth Station and will wait at the station until its scheduled northbound departure time.
