SunRail’s App is up and running.
We just downloaded the app today (5/13) on our iPhone and it looks pretty good. (Just go to the app store and type SunRail. We’re told it also works on Android smartphones.)
It’s just a shame that it has taken this long because many people have been clamoring for an app since SunRail’s launch. Riders on the move need an app, not the pseudo dingbat SunRail had for years.
The previous management at SunRail said an app wasn’t needed. That really made no sense since every company or organization has an app for the convenience of fans.
Credit for making the decision to create this app should rightly go to SunRail CEO Nicola Liquori who has developed a reputation for cutting through the silliness to get things done.
She was the leader who approved the text alert system to notify riders when there are service interruptions.
The debate over initiating a text message system lasted for a year and after Ms. Liquori came aboard, she moved ahead.
Sadly Ms. Liquori doesn’t have the budget or the authority to expand service to weekends and late nights, but she was the first SunRail executive to publicly admit the lack of weekend service was a major pain point for riders and would-be riders.
Now that the app is available, we would love your feedback on its functionality.
See you on The Rail.
