News from Sun Rain and Lynx
Sun Rail, LYNX and the Greater Airport Aviation Authority (GOAA) have worked together to develop a cohesive program aimed to educate both airport employees and the general public about the Lynx Non-Stop Link 111 service from SunRail’s Sand Lake Road station to Terminal A at the Orlando International Airport(OIA).
This excellent service, which has been in effect since SunRail’s launch on May 1, 2014, takes an average of only 15 minutes. LYNX 111 buses are timed to meet all SunRail trains as they arrive and depart SunRail’s Sand Lake Road station, providing a smooth transfer system.
“From the onset of my arrival into Central Florida I have maintained the position – SunRail and LYNX is one transit system. Regardless of the two governing structures the residents and visitors of Central Florida must experience a seamless, unified transportation system,” said Edward Johnson, LYNX’s Chief Executive Officer. Because of this philosophy and the collaboration between both systems’ leadership, the SunRail – Link 111 Non-Stop transfer has developed a loyal following among regular business travelers and airport employees.
OIA has over 18,000 employees and an average of 117,440 daily passengers. Passenger parking is often full, and employee parking is also limited requiring a shuttle from the designated employee lot to the terminals. So in partnership with GOAA, SunRail and LYNX will be hosting twice-monthly “Train to the Plane” education events for airport employees, and present at monthly GOAA Recognition Meetings in front of employees and leadership from multiple companies with employees at OIA.
