Orlando area commuters will have an opportunity to preview the new SunRail trains and stations at scheduled Train Tour events throughout March and April. The SunRail light rail will provide an option to driving on heavily travelled and often congested I-4 during morning and afternoon commutes. Using public transportation such as light rail trains reduces carbon emissions into the air and fuel demands.

Beginning Monday, March 3, 2014 in Winter Park the SunRail is inviting the community to view the Winter Park train station, tour the train and meet SunRail staff. The public can board and tour the train which has Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, double-decker views and more. SunRail representatives will be available to answer questions. For those people who have made the decision to use the SunRail for travel, reusable SunCards will be available for on-site purchase, as well.
