SunCard® Terms and Conditions
Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully and keep a copy for your records.
The SunCard is SunRail’s fare payment media for fare payment use at rail station fare validators, ticket vending machines and on handheld fare inspection devices and the SunRail mobile application. In the future, SunCard may be used on the fare payment devices of participating transit partners including LYNX, Votran and other transportation partners that choose to participate in the SunCard program. It utilizes account-based smart card technology to allow customers to load, store and use fare payment products and transfers.
These Terms and Conditions constitute your SunCard Agreement and shall apply to all activity with respect to the use of the SunCard. The use of the SunCard for SunRail services or the services of any of the participating transit partners constitutes acceptance of the Terms and Conditions.
Fare Payment and Card Inspection
All passengers must have in their possession a SunCard loaded with the appropriate fare product a valid limited use ticket prior to boarding the train. Passes and tickets are available at all SunRail stations, at www.SunRail.com and through the SunRail mobile application and are not sold onboard the train. All passengers are required to present, upon request, one of the above proof-of-payment documents to law enforcement officials, SunRail employees or SunRail contract employees acting on behalf of SunRail. Valid identification providing proof of eligibility for discounted fares may also be requested.
Failure to present valid proof-of-payment and/or proof of eligibility for discounted fares, upon request, is a first-degree misdemeanor and may result in a fine ranging from $50 to $1,000, arrest, and/or removal from the train (Florida Statutes 341.3025 and 812.015).
ONE-WAY & ROUND-TRIP TICKETS
One-way and round-trip tickets are valid for travel on SunRail the day of purchase only and are non-refundable.
Balance Protection and Replacement
An account is automatically created when you purchase a SunCard or fare product. Although customers are not required to register accounts, registration provides additional benefits to the customer including balance protection. With balance protection, the value in your account will be available in the event that your SunCard is lost, stolen or damaged and after a proper investigation is conducted. There is a non-refundable replacement card fee associated with issuance of a replacement card. If you have not registered your account, the value remaining in the account will not be available for transfer to a replacement card.
Information required to register your SunRail account and to sign up for balance protection includes: name, street address, phone number, email and an answer to security question(s) that will enable verification of identity. Upon activation of balance protection, you must provide SunRail with this information to validate your identity and to replace value if your card is lost, stolen, or damaged. You must inform SunRail of any changes to required information in order to maintain the privileges of balance protection. If your SunCard is lost, stolen, or damaged, you must notify SunRail immediately by visiting www.SunRail.com or by calling SunRail’s Customer Service Center at 1-855-724-5411. The TTY phone number for hearing and speech-impaired customers is 711 with the Florida Relay Service.
Once you notify SunRail that your SunCard is lost, stolen, or damaged, your SunCard or mobile will be disabled. You will be responsible for rides taken using your lost, stolen or damaged SunCard until you properly notify SunRail that your SunCard is lost, stolen, or damaged. You will not be responsible for unauthorized use after you properly report your card missing.
A SunCard costs $5.00 (non-refundable). Each person traveling on the system must have his or her own SunCard or limited use product.
Fare Products Available to SunCard Customers
The SunRail system is capable of offering three general types of products on a SunCard that may be implemented from time to time according to adopted policy. The general product types include time-based passes, stored trips and stored value. Stored trip products are not offered by SunRail at this time. You may load any combination of SunRail fare products onto a single SunCard.
Upon presentation at a fare payment device the system will check for and process any time-based passes first. If a timed pass is not present or has expired, the system will check for a trip-based pass. If no passes are present or are depleted, the system will deduct the appropriate fare from the stored cash value on the card. If no products are present, the fare payment device will provide an error message and passengers will be required to add value prior to boarding the train.
Pass products entitle customers to unlimited usage of SunRail for a specified period of time. Passes are available for various lengths of time. All pass products must be activated within 30 days of purchase. Pass products are activated upon first use, which must be within 30 days of purchase, and expire at the end of the pass period.
Stored trip products, if offered in the future, would allow customers to purchase a specific number of trips that would be decremented upon each use.
Stored value products allow customers to place a dollar value on a card. Upon each use the proper fare is decremented from the card.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Refunds for passes and limited use tickets are granted only for losses that occur due to the malfunction of a ticket vending machine, a ticket validator or the failure of a SunCard. These refunds will be in the form of an equivalent product or value loaded to a customer account. Refunds for SunCards in the form of cash, check or credit card reimbursement will not be made. Refunds for unused stored value will be provided on customer request for registered SunCards upon account closure. Stored value bonuses are non-refundable.
If you have made an error and/or have purchased an incorrect fare product, prior to use, please contact SunRail’s Customer Service Center at 1-855-724-5411 for further assistance. The hours of operation of the Customer Service Center are Monday to Friday 5:30 AM-9:30 PM.
Where to Purchase a SunCard
Ticket Vending Machine (TVM): SunCards may be purchased at a ticket vending machine located at each rail station. A one-time $5.00 non-refundable cost will apply for each SunCard purchased. Web-ticketing: SunCards ordered online will be mailed to the address provided when ordering the card. Please allow 2 to 10 business days for processing. Purchase your SunCard or add products to a SunCard online at www.SunRail.com.
SunCards expire ten (10) years after issuance. The expiration date of your card may be checked at any of the ticket vending machines located at the SunRail stations or by visiting www.SunRail.com. Passes or stored value in your registered account may be accessed by any linked SunCard. Any stored value or products remaining in a customer account after three years is considered unclaimed property and is handled in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Values contained in multiple customer accounts may not be combined to pay fares. Misuse of your SunCard may invalidate your card. SunRail reserves the right to inspect your SunCard any time for damage and abuse. It is your responsibility to maintain the SunCard in useable condition. Each individual who travels on the system is required to have their own SunCard.
SunRail reserves the right to correct the balance of your SunRail account if we believe that a technical or accounting error has occurred. If you have any disputes, please contact the Customer Service Center at 1-855-724-5411. An investigation will be performed and disputes will be resolved within ten (10) business days of receipt of completed form.
SunCards are hotlisted when customers are not complying with the Fare Policy. The Fare Policy requires that all passengers must tap on their SunCards or limited use tickets prior to boarding the train and when they exit the train. Tapping on at their boarding station and tapping off at their destination station allows for their SunCard to record their fare. Cards may be hotlisted due to misuse, not tapping on or tapping off or because there is a negative balance on the account. SunCards which are hotlisted more than twice a month will be required to set up an autoload. Hotlisted SunCards will receive a red X at the TVU with a message that the Fare Media is not recognized, declining the SunCard for travel.
While on the train, conductors will validate the fare on the SunCard. If fare presented is not valid, the conductor’s device will indicate this, and you may be asked to leave the train to purchase fare and the SunCard may be hotlisted.
If a SunCard has been hotlisted, please contact SunRail’s Customer Service Center at 1-855-724-5411 for further assistance. The hours of operation of the Customer Service Center are Monday to Friday 5:30 AM-9:30 PM.
Termination of SunCard by SunRail
SunRail may terminate use of your SunCard. Upon such termination, SunRail may block use of your SunCard or request surrender of your card. Upon SunRail termination, you shall be entitled to a refund of any prepaid value remaining in your account after costs and fees have been paid under this Agreement.
No Representations as to Future Fare Structure or Fees
SunCard is a type of fare payment media and does not entitle the user to a specific fare price or fare program. SunRail reserves the right to increase fares and the cost of fare programs in accordance with applicable policies and laws. Stored cash value will be deducted at the fare, fee or rate in effect when the SunCard is presented for entry on a train, fare payment device or at a rail station.
