The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its partner agencies are working diligently in successfully constructing the SunRail Commuter Line to serve the Central Florida Region. The project is a significant local, state, and federal investment which can ultimately be successful only if riders can access the SunRail stations through multiple modes of travel (walking, cycling, bus transit, and driving). The FDOT recognizes there is a need to look more closely at immediate and short term infrastructure requirements to seamlessly connect pedestrians and cyclists to the stations. Some of these needs are already being identified and planned for as part of the FDOT’s SunRail station development work, as well as by each municipality’s individual planning initiatives.
FDOT has initiated this Connectivity Study to help coordinate all of these individual efforts, as well as to identify any additional pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure projects critical to enhancing multi-modal connectivity around the SunRail stations. The Study will evaluate the identified infrastructure needs and help advance priority projects, as agreed upon by FDOT and the partner agencies through planning and concept development. Although longer term projects were identified as part of this effort, the focus of this study is to quickly identify immediate and near-term improvements that can be advanced through both the FDOT work program as well as individual municipalities’ work programs.
This website will house the team field evaluation reports for each station for easy access and review by the team.
