Florida Businesses Counting on SunRail

Florida Hospital has planned their new facility around the commuter rail project, which they hope will reduce their need for parking for patients and staff.

While Florida's high-speed rail got the kibosh, The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has given the go-ahead for the SunRail project and is projecting a 2013 opening.

Angela Cotey reports:

"Meanwhile, Orlando-area communities and businesses are putting plans in place to build stations and new developments, promote SunRail as a transportation alternative and determine how they can make the best use of their soon-to-be newest asset. And that asset, they hope, will help central Florida maintain its standing as a top place to live, work and play."
