In the continued effort to combat the current service delay and bus overcrowding concern in Osceola County the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) will be making service enhancements effective June 17.
The routes being adjusted will be Links 26, 55 and 56. Additional buses or printed schedule times have been extended to better serve Osceola County customers.
Since the beginning of LYNX’ fiscal year on Oct. 1, 2011, ridership in Osceola County is up 14.4 percent. Throughout the entire system it is up eight percent.
“This is a win-win for commuters in Osceola County, who depend on LYNX service as the most cost-effective way to access employment, education and healthcare,” said Osceola County Commissioner Brandon Arrington, whose district includes Poinciana. Arrington is also vice chairman of the LYNX board of directors and Chairman of MetroPlan Orlando, the region’s transportation planning agency. “The county and LYNX listened to riders and responded in a way that will decrease the long waits that created a real hardship for those who rely on bus service as their primary mode of transportation.”
Public schedules are being finalized and will be available on www.golynx.com. Customers also may plan their trips on the agency website or call 407-841-LYNX (5969) to speak with a customer service representative for assistance.
Effective June 17
