On this episode of The Orlando Guy, I begin a new series of programs riding the SunRail and highlighting places of interest along the way.
SunRail is a Central Florida passenger rail system serving the City of Orlando, Volusia, Seminole, Orange, and Osceola counties. Riders on the SunRail system use a stored-value card, in the form of a disposable ticket or a reloadable SunCard, to pay fares. The cost of SunRail tickets is based on the number of counties (zones) through which the rider will be traveling.
SunRail uses a "tap on/tap off" system for ticketing. Riders must "tap on" at a validator unit at the station prior to boarding the train by tapping their ticket on the screen and waiting for the beep. Riders must again "tap off" at a validator unit with their ticket after disembarking at their destination before exiting the station.
Reduced fares are available for seniors, students, and disabled riders.
