SunRail is a commuter rail system in the Greater Orlando, Florida, area, operational since May 1, 2014. It spans a 61.5-mile route with 16 stations, connecting Volusia, Seminole, Orange, and Osceola counties. The rail system runs parallel to Interstate 4 and consists of trains with a capacity to carry more than 150 passengers per car. SunRail operates Monday through Friday, with specific operating hours and fare structures designed to serve both regular commuters and occasional riders.
The SunRail project was conceived to improve transportation in Central Florida and to reduce the region's dependence on cars. It faced various challenges during its planning and approval phases, including funding and liability issues. The initial cost was estimated at over $1 billion, including construction and purchasing rights of way and tracks. After a series of legislative hurdles and negotiations, the project received approval with funding from federal, state, and local sources. SunRail's first phase, a 31-mile stretch with 12 stations, was launched in 2014. This was followed by a southern extension in 2018, adding an additional 17.2 miles and four stations to the system.
