The City of Orlando is working to create a more resilient, more sustainable community, while providing equitable access to resources and services for everyone who chooses to live in the City Beautiful. One step toward meeting that goal includes transitioning the LYMMO, a fare-free downtown circulator providing quick and convenient access to restaurants, retail, entertainment, and jobs, to a battery-powered electric fleet by 2025.
Through a public partnership between the City of Orlando, OUC, the Community Redevelopment Agency, and the LYNX transit authority, we will be adding eight battery electric buses to operate on two of the downtown LYMMO lines.
The first bus has arrived, and the remaining seven remaining buses will be added. This bus is quieter and cleaner than their predecessors, improving overall air quality and ride experience for users as well as the community at large.
