SunRail, Central Florida’s commuter rail system, continues to gain stream and generate interest. In August, the media and members of the Central Florida Commuter Rail Commission got a sneak peek of the first rail car that arrived in Central Florida. In September, SunRail took the show on the road, and an estimated 2,500 people turned out Saturday, September 21 at Central Park in downtown Winter Park to tour the new SunRail passenger cars. Tie, the SunRail Safety Squirrel, made his debut, part of a Radio Disney event. Phase I of SunRail commuter rail passenger service begins next spring, serving the Central Florida market, 32 miles from DeBary in Volusia County to Sand Lake Road—just south of Orlando. Phase II will extend service from DeLand in Volusia County to Poinciana in Osceola County in 2016, covering 61.5 miles.
