Mica's folly ?
Posted by blue streak 1 on Monday, February 27, 2017 6:49 PM

Congressman Mica pushed funding for Sun Rail but did not get enough funds for the southern extension that is just now under construction.  The southern extension will be IMO give a very big  passenger boost to ridership due to the gridlock on I-4 south west of Orlando especially around Kissimmne.

Some ticket contractor has made out bandit style and ticketing costs are just greater than ticket revenue.
