SunRail leisure riders just got an early Christmas present.
SunRail announced it will offer special late-night southbound service to support at home Orlando Magic games and some holiday-themed events in downtown Orlando.
The special southbound train will leave the Church Street station at 10:30 p.m. after the Orlando Magic games on Dec. 5, Dec. 7, Dec. 19, Dec. 26, Dec. 28 and Dec. 31.
This train will begin its run at Church Street, not DeBary. It is a welcome service to people whose home stations are south of downtown, all the way to Poinciana.
This builds on the success SunRail experienced with the special late-night southbound service offered this (November) month.
There’s already a regularly scheduled northbound SunRail train that arrives at Church Street at 10:30 every weekday night.
The special southbound service will also benefit riders who plan to attend the Nutcracker performance at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Dec. 7 and the White Christmas performance at Dr. Phillips on Dec. 19.
No, this isn’t the same as weekend train service, but it is a step in the right direction because it builds ridership and helps the community demonstrate that we want more service.
