Federal Transit Administration, City of Orlando and LYNX officials will kick-off construction of the new LYMMO Lime Line Construction on May 14, at the construction site of the old Amway Arena.

The new line is part of the city’s commitment to provide multi-modal forms of transportation and to improve the current infrastructure. To further this, Downtown Orlando’s newest bust rapid transit line, the LYMMO Lime Line, will begin construction next week.

The new Lime Line will increase mobility in Orlando’s urban core, connect to other existing transit options such as SunRail and Bike Share and provide another affordable transportation alternative to using a car and increasing access to jobs and opportunity, promoting active lifestyles and reducing our impact on the environment.

The expansion of the Lime Line will add nine stops and 2.1 miles of service and connect the Parramore and Callahan neighborhoods to the Central Business District, SunRail, U.S. Courthouse, FAMU College of Law, State Office Complex, Amway Center and Creative Village.

Once operational in late 2016, the Lime Line is expected to move 1,500 passengers daily and will operate with 10 minute service during peak hours and 15 minutes in off-peak hours evenings and weekends.
