Dear President Trump,
We hope you enjoy your visit to Orlando today (6/18).
Public transit – particularly the SunRail train – made it easy for many of your supporters to attend your campaign event at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando.
Since SunRail was launched 5 years ago, the passenger rail system has inspired billions of dollars in development and expanded employment opportunities for many Central Florida residents.
SunRail is nowhere near its full potential for making Central Florida great.We need your attention and support to:
· Complete SunRail’s initial plan to expand SunRail service to DeLand – the Volusia County seat. That expansion provides an affordable and smart transportation option that will take more cars off Interstate 4. This also gives more Volusia County residents broader employment opportunities in Seminole, Orange, and Osceola counties. It would also link 4 colleges/universities – Stetson University, Rollins College, the University of Central Florida and Valencia College – not to mention Florida A& M University law school in downtown Orlando and Barry Law School in east Orange County.· Construct a SunRail train link to Orlando International Airport. That direct link to the airport is the key to expanding service hours on SunRail – which at this time are limited to weekday bankers’ hours· Buy more trains. Currently, SunRail only has enough rolling stock for 10 trains – a locomotive with two passenger coaches. With 7-day service and later hours, more trains and more crews will be needed to give our community the service that it deserves.
We would be grateful if you included SunRail in the infrastructure plans we’ve heard you mention.
