SunRail changes schedule
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. Check Sunrail.com/modified-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, email@example.com 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.
