SunRail changes sched­ule

Orlando Sentinel - - Coronaviru­s Covid-19 -

SunRail will mod­ify its sched­ule to help re­duce the spread of coro­n­avirus. Be­gin­ning Tues­day, reg­u­larly sched­uled trains will run only dur­ing peak morn­ing and evening hours Mon­day through Fri­day to ac­com­mo­date the ma­jor­ity of riders who travel to and from work.

“Safety of riders and work­ers is our top pri­or­ity,” the Florida De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion said in a state­ment re­leased Sun­day night. “SunRail is tak­ing ex­tra pre­cau­tions to re­duce the po­ten­tial spread of COVID-19. Ad­di­tional work­ers have been hired to in­crease the fre­quency of clean­ing on­board and at sta­tion plat­forms. Train in­te­ri­ors are be­ing dis­in­fected nightly and sta­tion am­bas­sadors are sup­plied with san­i­tiz­ing sup­plies to dis­in­fect all sta­tion equip­ment and fre­quently touched sur­faces through­out the day.”

The new sched­ule in­cludes north­bound and south­bound trains that run from 5:06-10:18 a.m. and 3-8:53 p.m., de­pend­ing on lo­ca­tion. Check­i­fied-sched­ule for a de­tails break­down of the sched­ule and more in­for­ma­tion about the changes.

Sunrail’s Lost & Found is also closed un­til April 20. All items found will be safely stored for 90 days, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany’s web­site.

There will not be re­duced fares dur­ing this time, but SunRail will al­low SunCard hold­ers to sus­pend their passes by con­tact­ing cus­tomer ser­vice at 1-855-RAIL-411, or through “Have A Ques­tion” on the mo­bile App. Pass hold­ers will need to con­tact cus­tomer ser­vice again 72 hours be­fore they are ready to ride again, and SunRail will ex­tend the passes equiv­a­lent to the num­ber of days they did not ride the train.
