Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida Partners with FDOT for
“SunRail Safety Read-In for Kids” Initiative
Orlando – Reading, riding and train safety is taking center track this summer as the Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida—a recipient of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant—is partnering with the SunRail and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to help teach kids about rail safety through a series of “read-ins” on the train.
Every Friday, for six weeks during the summer, the children are boarding SunRail trains to learn more about safety, by reading. It’s anticipated some 220 children total are taking part during the six weeks. The next “SunRail Safety Read-In for Kids” takes place tomorrow, Friday, July 11 at 8 a.m. at both the SunRail Altamonte Springs and Maitland stations. Children receive free workbooks and other SunRail safety material to read on the train.

Important reminder: Motorists and pedestrians are urged to use caution, obey all railroad and traffic signals, and look both ways before approaching a railroad crossing and accessing SunRail platforms. The Florida Department of Transportation cares about your safety. Around railroad tracks, please be smart, and stay safe.
Consistent, Predictable, Repeatable
