  1. They’ve been impounding cars and fining drivers for both uber and left since they started. You can still get rides easily but the city is being slow to accept them.

  2. We need to get familiar with our local transportation. I took the Lynx Lymo Grapefruit line and it took me from Thornton Park right to the Ribbon cutting of the new Dr. Phillips center in 5 min. no parking, no traffic. It comes every 15 minutes. Took it back to Publix then a Uber car back to work. I probably did all that before most people found their 10.00 parking spaces.

  3. If Orlando got better mass transit or let Uber operate openly then this would be great. Until then the only way to get anywhere in Orlando is to drive so road closures suck.

  4. Agreed. And posted a month or more in advance for those other business in area who are also planning events for their businesses.

  5. I’m hoping that the traffic snarls that are predicted will NOT become a thing of the future. We need Sunrail on nights and weekends — and SOON.
