SunRail’s special Saturday service will continue on November 19th – but don’t expect it every weekend quite yet. This week’s Saturday service will help riders attend the Florida Classic, Orlando Magic game and numerous other events happening along the SunRail route. However, SunRail will NOT be running special service the following Saturday on November 26th.
The first southbound train from the DeBary station this weekend will leave at noon in order to accommodate fans who may be attending the Florida Classic football game at Camping World Stadium. The second southbound train will not leave the DeBary station until 2pm. The full schedule for November 19th is below.
SunRail will be collecting fares on Saturday and SunRail officials are advising riders to get to the train stations 30 minutes early, especially if planning to purchase tickets at the vending machines on the platforms.
In addition to the Florida Blue Florida Classic between Bethune-Cookman and FAMU, the Orlando Magic face off against the Dallas Mavericks at the Amway Center (use Church Street Station for both events). There will also be Winter in the Park, ice skating in the West Meadow, taking place along the route (use Winter Park Station) as well as the Festival of Trees at Lake Mary Museum (use Lake Mary Station) and the Festival of Trees at Orlando Museum of Art (use Florida Hospital Health Village Station).
