First SunRail commuter rail cab car unveiled in Sanford

Posted: Updated:

For many, it could soon be the newest method to riding in style.

Officials on Monday unveiled the new SunRail passenger cab car in Sanford.  Area mayors were able to look over the $3 million vehicle that will be carrying commuters from Kissimmee to DeBary for the first phase of the commuter rail system.

"This is the future of transportation in Central Florida," said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. "Great seating, tables, perfect commute."

The double-decker, 132-seat cab car is equipped with all the latest necessities, including WiFi and electrical outlets.  This is the first of nearly two dozen cab cars to be delivered in the coming months.

"This is a total game changer," said Kissimmee Mayor Frank Atkinson.

The Florida Department of Transportation is responsible for construction of the rail line and operating the service for the first seven years.

"Then the five local partners -- Osceola, Orange, Seminole, Volusia, and the City of Orlando -- will be responsible for operations after that," Dyer explained.
