Guess how much it costs to extend SunRail to Daytona Beach?

People always say they wish SunRail went all the way to Daytona Beach, instead of ending in DeBary.
World's most famous beach

At a SunRail commission meeting Wednesday morning Volusia County Council Member Pat Patterson said it would cost $1 billion to extend the train service to Daytona Beach. Yes, that’s billion, as in B.

Right now no one can come up with the $77 million it would cost to extend SunRail to the Volusia County seat in DeLand.

So, in other words it ain’t happening. Or at least it won’t happen any time soon.

We’re sure our great grandchildren will enjoy taking SunRail to the beach.
