Yes, it’s true. SunRail will run THIS Sunday (March 5).
This special train service is being offered to support the first Orlando City Soccer match at the team’s new stadium on Church Street.
The match is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., but the first SunRail train is set to depart DeBary at 1:30 p.m. The first northbound train leaves Sand Lake Road at 3 p.m.
The train will run at hourly intervals until game time. Please note that this service is being privately funded because much to our regret, SunRail does not usually run on the weekends.
Though the service is being privately funded, regular SunRail fares will apply on Sunday, and it’s advisable that you get to your local train service early because it’s likely there will be long lines at the automated ticket machines. Best if you use a debit or credit card because the cash ticket vending can be wonky.
Newbie riders, please note that the southbound Church Street station is on South Street.
When you get off the train, turn right to head toward Church Street. Don’t forget to tap off with your ticket. There are three ticket validators in the station so if you see a big line, just go to the next one.
You can get to Church Street by turning left when you leave the station. Walk down to Garland Avenue (parallel to Interstate 4) turn right walk one block to Church Street, pass under the interstate and you’ll see the stadium just a couple of blocks ahead of you.
Enjoy your walk. Don’t forget the last northbound SunRail train is scheduled to leave Church Street at 9:10 p.m.
