will operate Monday-Friday.

Service Hours will be 6:50 a.m.-11:02 p.m.  Monday through Friday. The 10:05 p.m. NeighborLink 631 trip from Valencia College will extend and cover the NeighborLink 632 service area to drop off only. The last trip on NeighborLink 632 departing the LYNX Kissimmee Intermodal Station at 10:47 p.m. will operate as local bus service, serving all stops along Main Street and Vine Street to the Osceola Square Mall.

Lake County has contracted with LYNX to revive service on Links 55 and 204. Lake County has also established a fare increase to $7/daily, $35/5-day and $140/30-day. Discounts will be available for those eligible and certified by Lake County. These new rates will only be valid on Link 204. Morning passengers arriving at LYNX Central Station (LCS) will still receive a free transfer. Afternoon passengesr traveling to LCS on a LYNX route will first pay a LYNX fare when boarding, exit the bus and then pay a separate Lake County fare to board Link 204.
