We went to Facebook to ask for thoughts on SunRail’s service

We took to Facebook last week to ask you to tell us what your SunRail experience has been and what you think could be done to improve the service.

Overall, people like the train and seem to be happy with it; however, lack of evening and weekend service seems to be the biggest complaint people have about SunRail so far.

Read on to hear what readers told us they think could be done to make SunRail even better.

 

 

I work downtown, but I live in Volusia County, and SunRail stops running about an hour before my shift is over. I’m sure the two hospitals on the route have other employees in my situation. I’d love to be able to cut $300 a month out of my gas bill.

Weekends. It needs to stop being called a commuter rail. We operate a small business in Winter Park, and since the SunRail has opened, we have seen such an influx of new customers. Weekends would really help out the small-business community.
– Jen Denhart

If there was a way to get from the Maitland station to the RDV, like a shuttle, I’d ride it. I’m not walking or getting off in Winter Park to take a bus. No thanks. They need shuttles to get from the stations to work or entertainment areas.
– Shawn McCurdy

Dining car, please.

East-West expansion would be fantastic – especially to help ease traffic on Colonial. Connections to universities and tourism hubs would probably improve the safety of our roads for pedestrians and drivers alike. If a long-term solution connected the Orlando International Airport, theme parks, Tampa and Cape Canaveral, we’d have a substantially stronger tourist-friendly city, which would also benefit residents and commuters near and far.
– Leslie Salas

The train needs to run every hour on non-rush hour times. Plus have a late train.
– Misty Godin

They should have made more standing room and had one long bench like a subway train. These trips aren’t long enough for most people to need that many seats.
– Seiji Schoppert

It’s great and necessary, but it needs to operate more often during the afternoon, and of course on nights and weekends. The lunch schedule is basically nonexistent unless you’d like to wait an extra hour for the next train. If we want to be a big city, we must operate like one.
