LYNX is reimagining its transit services to create seamless connections with the Orlando International Airport, SunRail, Bus Rapid Transit projects, ridesharing and bikesharing services.

The public transit organization is relying on public input at three regional meetings this week to help complete its LYNX Forward plan. It is luring participants to attend by offering a chance to win a 7-day or 30-day LYNX bus passes.

The company is partnering with city and county leaders and the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority to produce a 10-Year Transit Development Plan, which will define the transportation needs of the region. The plan will improve frequency and reliability on routes through a Route Optimization Study.

A long-range plan is required by the Florida Department of Transportation for all public transit organizations.

“LYNX is moving forward into a 21st century system, offering more frequent, reliable, and quality service for all Central Florida riders,” according to a statement from the company.

    FYI, LYNX is the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority. LYNX is the user-friendly name under which they do business.
