Home | News and Events | KnightLYNX Expanding with UCF to Downtown Service

Posted: January 31, 2013 to February 12, 2014

Due to the overwhelming success of the current KnightLYNX service, the University of Central Florida (UCF) Student Government Association (SGA) and the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) will partner on a downtown Orlando expansion beginning Feb. 1.

The new Link 212/Knight LYNX Red will run Friday and Saturday evenings and depart from the UCF Arena every hour 9-11 p.m. Return trips from the corner of Garland Avenue and South Street will leave downtown Orlando every hour 1-3 a.m. KnightLYNX Red will travel downtown via Alafaya Trail and the East/West Expressway 408 exiting at South Crystal Lake Drive. The bus will make stops along South Street at South Bumby Avenue, South Summerlin Drive and South Garland Avenue. 

All three KnightLYNX routes are funded by the UCF SGA as a way to provide a safe and reliable public transportation option on and near the university’s main campus. Currently the service is averaging 250 riders per weekend night.
