Four new SunRail stops planned between Sand Lake and Kissimmee




It's official – SunRail is getting four new stops between Sand Lake Road and Kissimmee. Today U.S. Rep. John Mica announced that full funding of $186 million is in place to expand the rail system south. The four new stops will be located at:
  • Meadow Woods in Orange County
  • Osceola Parkway (Tupperware station)
  • Kissimmee Amtrak (downtown)
  • Poinciana
Half of the funding for the project comes from the feds; the other half will be split between local and state governments. 

The four new SunRail stops should be in operation by late 2017.
