Kissimmee SunRail riders get a boost

Starting Monday (1/28) public transit in Kissimmee will get a big boost.

That’s when Lynx’s Kissimmee Circulator -- also known as Link 709 -- begins service at the Kissimmee SunRail station.

This mini-bus was launched to make it easier for people to get to popular destinations in Kissimmee’s downtown core.

The service, which will run from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, will link the intermodal transit station with the Osceola County Courthouse and administrative center with Kissimmee City Hall, Osceola Regional Medical Center, Florida Hospital Kissimmee.

Until now, it’s been a pretty good hike between the intermodal station – which serves passengers from SunRail, Lynx, Amtrak, and Greyhound -- and the county courthouse.

The Kissimmee Connector will travel on Dakin Street, Lakeview Drive, Emmett Street, Church Street, Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, Oak Street, Central Avenue, and Main Street.

For the first 6 months of service, people will be able to ride the 12-passenger mini-bus for free.

See you on The Connector.
