Although Hurricane Ian inflicted some rail damage in the southernmost segment of the SunRail line, most of the system’s operations are unchanged.

Now that Ian has come and gone, and as the cleanup and recovery get underway, SunRail is resuming its weekday transit service.

The Florida Department of Transportation, which now owns and operates SunRail, says the trains running between DeBary and Meadow Woods (in the south part of Orlando) will keep their normal schedules. 

The stretch of commuter rail southward from Meadow Woods to Poinciana will be modified with bus-transfer service, until track repairs are completed. The track repairs take ”several weeks,” according to the FDOT.

SunRail suspended service Sept. 27, in advance of Hurricane Ian‘s landfall.
