Downtown Orlando's newest bus rapid transit line, the LYMMO Lime Line has begun construction. Lime Line will increase mobility in Orlando's urban core by adding nine stops and 2.1 miles of expanded, free transportaion service that connects the Parramore and Callahan neighborhoods to the Central Business District, SunRail, U.S. Courthouse, FAMU College of Law, State Office Complex, Amway Center and the Creative Village.
The 2.1 mile BRT expansion will impact Amelia Street and Central, Division, Garland and Hughy Avenues. However, the majority of construction activity will occur at Livingston Street and Terry Avenue. Improvements will include the addition of new stops, shelters, and kiosks. Public infrastructure improvements within the Creative Village site will include new roads, signals, street lights, water, sewer, drainage, electrical, signage, streetscape and hardscape improvements.
