LYNX Announces December Service Efficiencies
The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) will be making system-wide efficiencies on Dec. 16.
The agency previously held public workshops and a hearing to discuss changes for two routes. Link 111 will no longer serve the Walt Disney World Resort and will now operate every 60 minutes seven days per week. Link 319 will now operate every 30 minutes Monday through Saturday.
LYNX also will introduce two new routes to connect with Haines City at Hinson Plaza during the system-wide efficiencies. The Monday-Saturday Links will be funded by Polk County Transit Services connecting at the Poinciana Walmart and Four Corners Walmart on U.S. 27. Transfers between the two partnering systems will be free.
Customers may visit www.golynx.com to view maps and plan trips through Google Maps or call 407-841-LYNX (5969) to speak with a customer service representative for assistance.
The next service efficiencies will take place in April 2013
