FOX 35 INVESTIGATES: The Cost of SunRail

Fewer than 1,000 people ride on SunRail a day, on average. The commuter train runs up a huge deficit at taxpayer's expense, to the tune of almost $50 million a year.

SunRail losing money because riders are breaking rules, says FDOT

SunRail is losing money, because some riders are not following the rules, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. Riders are supposed to "tap on" with their cards when they board the train and "tap off" when they get to their destination. An FDOT spokesman says some riders are "gaming the system" by not tapping off.
