The elected local officials who serve on the SunRail commission usually don’t raise the topic of weekend service. But something truly amazing occurred during the May (5/15) commission meeting.
Tawny Olore, the FDOT engineer who serves as the SunRail project manager, was wrapping up her report on long-range plans to expand SunRail service to Poinciana, DeLand and Orlando International Airport (referred to as Phase 3). Just as Olore was about to leave the podium Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, who also chairs the SunRail commission, told Olore that “I think we all agree that when we construct Phase 3 and we’re having service to the airport we’re going to have have Saturday and Sunday service.”
