New Downtown East-West LYMMO Route Coming Soon

Lynx is working over the next couple of months to add a new LYMMO route in downtown Orlando.

The new East-West route will be the second route for the free downtown bus service. The East-West route runs between Westmoreland Dr. and Summerlin Ave. The buses will head east on Central Blvd and west on Church and South Streets (see map).

The new line will touch some key areas for folks who visit downtown including the Amway Center, Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center, Church Street SunRail station and Thornton Park.

The East-West route will be about half bus rapid transit lanes. Meaning the bus will have its own lane and controls its own traffic signals.

The new route construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year and fully operational by spring of 2014. This will coincide with start of SunRail.

The hours of operation for both LYMMO lines will be the same. Buses begin running at 6:00 a.m. on weekdays and at 10:00 a.m. on weekends. The buses run until 10:00 p.m. Sunday though Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The new line will run every 10 minutes during office hours and every 15 minutes in the evenings. This is 5 minutes more than the existing LYMMO line.

  1. Hi Matt – yes construction progress updates, especially where they are building BRT dedicated lanes. I’m not local anymore so the construction progress updats are much appreciated!

  2. Thank you for the update. I’d actually like to see a more comprehensive construction tour of this project. I think it is a pretty significant project for downtown Orlando and really isn’t getting much coverage.
