SunRail ridership continues to climb, according to a March press release from the Florida Department of Transportation that credits the bump partially to the 17-mile southern expansion into Osceola County and a new schedule.

Ridership during revenue service in January and February 2019 reached all-time highs, with the average daily ridership over 6,000 per day, according to FDOT.

Friday ridership alone in 2019 is averaging more than 6,300.

“The ridership numbers are very exciting, and we are anticipating even higher numbers in March and April as these months are typically among the strongest for SunRail,” said company CEO Nicola Liquori in a press release last week.
