BFFs at the City of Kissimmee are getting a welcome addition. With the new SunRail station opening downtown on July 30 within walking distance of shops in downtown Kissimmee, walkability is top of mind.

The Downtown Business Association of Kissimmee, Inc. and Kissimmee Main Street partnered with First United Methodist School and the Kissimmee Police Department for a Pedestrian Awareness Campaign in May.

Keep up the great work, Kissimmee locals! And drivers, chill out and look out for local pedestrians.
