To all of my friends in Central Florida,
Thank you for taking the time to visit golynx.com. I am proud of the daily hard work by our 1,000 extremely dedicated and passionate public employees to
provide you with the safe and efficient service you so richly deserve.
As the CEO, I have a mix of short and long-term objectives to improve your LYNX experience. One is to make greater use of technology. How
great would it be for you to receive real-time information via a Smartphone to see when the next bus will arrive or even do it from your home or
We want to utilize right size vehicles for the right size Link. Imagine express/non-stop service to our downtown campus from the outlying
areas. This will not only benefit current riders but, introduce our service to new passengers. I want LYNX to be the mode of
choice…not a last resort.
The biggest obstacle we must overcome as an agency and region is our funding model. Point blank, it is antiquated. In order to continue
providing top-notch service we must find the correct dedicated funding source. I promise to work with our Board, who are committed to transit, to
find the proper solution. If we are going to be successful in meeting the transportation needs of a growing community, it will require
adequate and more sustainable funding for buses and operation.
It is an exciting time to lead this agency. In my more than three years here at LYNX I have come to find that Central Florida
truly is a desirable place to live, work and play.
Please feel free to contact me anytime or you can follow me on Twitter (@jlewisgolynx) for a sneak peek into life at Central Florida’s home for public transportation.
