February 28, 2017

Beginning March 1, LYNX will invite qualified non-profit organizations in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties to register for a spot on the agency’s coveted Public Service Bus.

Nine qualified agencies will be chosen in a random drawing to have their logo displayed for one year. Plus, one of the nine lucky organizations will be selected for the bus rear panel. The Public Service Bus travels routes every day throughout the three-county area.

To be eligible, the non-profit organization must be based in Orange, Osceola or Seminole County; operate on a budget of less than $1 million and show proof of 501(c)(3) status or be a governmental agency.

Qualified agencies are required to:

  • Fill out registration form online (www.golynx.com) with all fields completed.
  • Attach copy of 501(c)(3) status or government agency designation. (Example: IRS form.)
  • Attach copy of annual budget of less than $1 million. (Example: annual budget document.)
  • Attach electronic file of organization logo in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) format.

The deadline to enter is 5 p.m. March 31.  Incomplete entries will not be accepted. Winners will be notified after the random drawing during the week of April 4.

Agencies on the 2016-17 Public Service Bus are not eligible until next year.

The official unveiling of the 2017-18 Public Service Bus will be held at a to-be-determined location in late April.
