LYNX and Regional Partners to Test Orlando International Airport to Downtown Orlando Zero Emission Trip
November 5, 2021
LYNX will operate a month long zero-emission pilot project utilizing electric buses between the region’s largest airport, convention center and downtown Orlando.
The project will run Nov. 8-Dec. 4 using ABC Companies Van Hool electric bus motor coach with stops at Orlando International Airport, Sand Lake Road SunRail Station (weekdays only), Orange County Convention Center and Destination Parkway SuperStop. This route will operate as FASTLINK ZERO. Customers will be able to transfer to an electric Proterra bus on Link 38 at the Destination Parkway SuperStop and travel downtown to LYNX Central Station, where they can hop on an electric LYMMO Orange Line bus to the Orange County Administration Building or Orlando City Hall.
The project’s focus will be to demonstrate the potential of an electric bus zero-emission trip that will enhance the passenger experience with more direct connections throughout the region. Currently, LYMMO buses began transitioning to an all-electric fleet in October 2020. The LYMMO fleet will be fully electric in mid-2022.

The FASTLINK ZERO route will not operate on Nov. 25, Thanksgiving Day.
Project partners are Orange County Government, City of Orlando, Orange County Convention Center, the Orlando Utilities Commission and the Central Florida Expressway Authority.Download Attachment
