SunRail’s Southern Expansion opened on July 30, 2018, linking Sand Lake Road in Orange County to Poinciana in Osceola County. This is a 17.2-mile segment that features four additional stations.
Near the intersection of South Orange Avenue and Fairway Woods Boulevard, the SunRail station at Meadow Woods offers easy transit access to South Orange County and north Osceola County’s burgeoning residential neighborhoods.
The station also serves the nearby South Orange Sports Complex.
Tupperware SunRail Station
Near the intersection of Osceola Parkway and Michigan Avenue, the Tupperware SunRail station at Osceola Parkway is centrally located to the south of the Hunters Creek subdivision in Orange County and to the west of Buenaventura Lakes. This station is home to a new mixed-use development that will include residential, commercial and retail opportunities adjacent to the SunRail platform.
In addition, the station provides direct transit access for Walt Disney World employees and visitors.
The nostalgic Kissimmee station, located near the intersection of Broadway Street and Monument Avenue in downtown Kissimmee, is within easy walking distance of dining and shopping centers, the Osceola County Courthouse and Government Center, Osceola Regional Medical Center and the Lake Tohopekaliga shore.
Indeed, Lakefront Park, where outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy ready access to boating, fishing, picnicking and other recreational activities on Lake Tohopekaliga, is only about a half-mile from SunRail’s downtown depot. SunRail station design plans call for a parking lot integrated into the city’s long-range plans for an intermodal stop, providing commuters with easy bus and transit connections.
Near the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Poinciana Boulevard, the SunRail station at Poinciana serves one of the fastest growing employment centers in the region, with more than 1,600 current workers at the 1,200 acre park and major expansions planned for the future.
In addition, the nearby Poinciana development is currently one of the fastest growing residential areas in Osceola County. SunRail station design plans include a park and ride lot with bus drop off area, with plenty of transit-oriented development potential in surrounding areas.
