How come ticket validators are out of order at several SunRail stations?
Funny you should ask because this question came up at December’s meeting of the elected officials who serve on the board overseeing SunRail operations.
The SunRail managers said the wiring “degraded” to the devices riders use to pay for their ride by “tapping on” and “tapping off” trains at the stations. They validators are awaiting repairs. Kind of disappointing that SunRail has been in operations for less than two years and some wiring is already degrading.
Seminole County Commissioner Bob Dallari wanted to know why in 2015 SunRail was relying on wires to carry data. He was surprised that SunRail -- like many major companies and most people’s homes -- hasn’t gone wireless.
Great points Comish!
SunRail managers said they’re looking into using wireless in the future.
