Tomorrow morning, Mayor Buddy Dyer will board hop on a train at the Debary Sunrail station at 8:15 a.m. and then ride it for all twelve stops as part of the official "Whistle Stop Grand Opening Tour." The Mayor's tour will end at the Sand Lake Road Station with a Grand Opening Celebration. The Grand Opening Celebration and each of the Mayor's stop on the journey are open to the public. At each of the stations, there will be a celebration to coincide with the arrival of the Mayor.
On Wednesday, there will be no opportunities to board the train, but you won't have to wait long. Starting May 1, you'll have two weeks to ride the rails yourself, for free. Click here for the full train schedule. Right now, it's just days. No nights or weekends, but we have our fingers crossed! After the free period ends on March 16, a one-way ride on the train'll cost you $2, unless you cross county lines. Then you'll add $1 to your fare for each county line you cross.
Don't forget to eat up before boarding the train, though, as food is prohibited on SunRail.
