Readers tell us what they think about SunRail
We went to Facebook to ask for thoughts on SunRail’s service

I use it occasionally and love it. Wish I could use it more often, but the two-hour break between the last two trains is no good. I work at the hospital, and I think by not having another train 30 minutes after the 7:22 train, they are missing out on a lot of potential commuters at the hospitals that work 12-hour shifts. I’d also love to use it on the weekends on my free time.

Tried to take the SunRail, and it was full, so I awkwardly walked back to work.

Still no security/cameras? The DeBary station should have a parking garage.

Aside from more midday runs, weekend hours and an Orlando International Airport connection, I think they need to devise a way to apply the discounted child/senior fares to the prepaid Suncard. Currently, the only way to receive the discount is to prepay for a whole week/month/year. If you use rail sporadically (we use it one to two times per week to visit Florida Hospital or the Orlando Science Center), purchasing a monthly pass isn’t really a cost savings.

I was invited to be on the inaugural ride as Commissioner Patty Sheehan’s guest. The train was beautiful, fast and a smooth ride. … It was an amazing experience because the next generation that grows up in Metro Orlando is always going to have known mass transit, something the rest of us longed for for an eternity. Sign the petition to extend the hours of operation!
