ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer is calling on residents to use SunRail to help the service expand.Website Insert Real Numbers copy

Ridership is down for the year, but there’s not a clear answer as to what needs to come first–the riders or the service–to allow SunRail to increase its services.

A little more than 3,800 riders used SunRail every day this month.

But potential riders who are being encouraged to get on board said they can’t until SunRail has more stops and more hours, and right now it’s uncertain when and how that will happen.

“The faster we grow SunRail ridership, the faster this future arrives,” said Dyer in his State of the City address.

The future Dyer described Monday linked a growing SunRail to a growing city.

Potential riders agree, but said they can’t help grow ridership until SunRail grows first.
