Home | News and Events | Osceola County Routes to be Adjusted

Posted: January 17, 2014 to June 1, 2014

On Jan. 20 the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) will be making adjustments to Links 10, 26, 55, 56 and 108

With the opening of the LYNX Kissimmee Intermodal Station on Jan. 12 these routes moved to the $1.2 million southern transfer hub. As sometimes occurs with the opening of new facilities, customers contacted the agency with recommendations for more effective service.

LYNX has 29.8 million annual passengers and values their observations. The agency will be implementing several of these ideas that can be achieved without additional funding.

Daily service hours have been extended on Link 56 to include a later final trip in both directions.

Links 10, 26, 55 and 108 will all have a timepoint added at the City of Kissimmee Central Services Complex at 100 N. Alaska Ave. Early morning trips on these routes will make courtesy stops between the complex and the LYNX Kissimmee Intermodal Station via Osceola Square Mall. The routes will travel along Thacker Avenue, Mabbette Street, Columbia Street and Armstong Avenue to the mall and then follow the existing Link 55 route into the intermodal station. Destination signs for all four routes will show Kissimmee via Osceola Square Mall.

The Link 108 arriving at Kissimmee Intermodal Station at 10:47 p.m. will also extend at 10:50 p.m. to Osceola Square Mall making all stops along the exiting Link 55 route. The destination sign will read Osceola Square Mall.

Maps are being finalized and will be available on www.golynx.com.
