Home | News and Events | Maitland to Receive New NeighborLink Service

Posted: December 8, 2014 to December 7, 2015

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) will be adding new service to Maitland along with the previously announced Dec. 14 service changes.

Starting Dec. 15 the NeighborLink (NL) 652/Maitland Center will be a Monday-Friday flex-service aimed to make it easier for Maitland Center employees to connect to SunRail.

Service will depart the Maitland SunRail Station heading to Maitland Center at 6:05, 7:05 and 8:05 a.m.; and will drop passengers off at the SunRail station at 5:15, 6:15 and 7 p.m.

Passengers must call 407-244-0808 at least two hours before their travel to schedule a pickup time. LYNX does offer subscription service to customers regularly traveling to the same place at the same time/day each week.

The NL 652 will be funded for one year of operation by the Florida Department of Transportation and Orange County and is considered a pilot program.

All maps for the Dec. 14 updates have been posted at www.golynx.com.

The next service efficiencies are scheduled to take place April 19, 2015.
