Launch a Lynx express bus connecting SunRail to Disney

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Disney World employs more than 60,000 people yet there is no fast way for them to reach their jobs on SunRail and Lynx.

Currently, the most “direct” Lynx connection is from the Kissimmee Intermodal Station in downtown Kissimmee (one of SunRail’s busiest stations) via Lynx Link 56. That bus run takes more than an hour to Disney. There’s also Link 306 that runs once a day from the Poinciana SunRail station to Disney Springs at 6:35 a.m. and returns from Disney Springs to the train station at 5:40 p.m.

Enduring hours on Lynx buses to get to work and home is not “magical”; it’s cruel, especially when there is a reasonable solution to this problem.

Public-transit commuters could reach their jobs at Disney in 20 minutes or less if Lynx offered an express bus from the Tupperware SunRail station. That station is on Osceola Parkway, which provides a straight shot into Disney.

In addition to Disney workers – many are paid so poorly they cannot afford a car – this express-bus service would likely be used by theme park visitors who want to reach Disney with SunRail.

Disney talks a good game on the topics of corporate responsibility and sustainable resources. With a little “pixie dust” that multi-billion-dollar corporate giant could easily provide subsidies and other support needed to launch this express-bus service.

Follow the example of SunRail that recently started offering late-night southbound service to help people get home from Orlando Magic games. That experiment had impressive results.

This express-bus proposal could make public-transit convenient and useful to more people.
