Orlando's LYNX to add up to 50 New Flyer CNG artics

Posted on June 19, 2019

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) issued a new contract for up to 75 CNG Xcelsior® 60-foot, heavy-duty transit buses, with a firm order for 25 buses (50 equivalent units or EUs) and options to purchase up to an additional 50 buses (100 EUs).

The new, low-emission articulated buses will provide more frequent and reliable high-quality service for passengers in the greater Orlando area. The buses will also increase passenger capacity, enhance operational efficiencies, and improve the overall passenger experience.

LYNX is the mobility provider for Florida’s tri-county area including Orange, Seminole, and Osceola, delivering over 26 million passenger trips per year. Together with the Florida Department of Transportation, LYNX developed a 10-year transit development plan to meet public transportation needs in its service area.
