Why no MLK holiday service?

SunRail explains why the trains did not run on Martin Luther King Jr. holiday

Many riders complained that SunRail wasn’t running on MLK Holiday so we asked SunRail 2 questions. Please see the questions and SunRail’s response in italic.

1.    Many Central Floridians had to work Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and most transit systems around the country – including LYNX, Votran and Tri-Rail -- operated on their usual daily schedule, why did SunRail decide not to provide service on Monday?
SunRail is closed on seven federal holidays – which are prominently displayed on the schedule, travel guide and on ticket vending machines, as well as on the website. New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

2.    Does SunRail have plans to re-evaluate its holiday schedule for this year, and for the future?
The Florida Department of Transportation is constantly evaluating all aspects of the schedule.
