Lynx LYMMO Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Evaluation
The Lynx LYMMO Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Evaluation Report was sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and released in 2003. The objective of the evaluation was to document and assess the Lynx LYMMO BRT service in downtown Orlando, Florida as one of the newest and innovative applications of BRT service in Florida and the U.S. In partnership with the Lynx (transit operator), Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the FTA, the National Bus Rapid Transit Institute (NBRTI) conducted an objective evaluation of the LYMMO BRT service.
The final report contains a comprehensive profile of the LYMMO system from inception to operation including a historical narrative, engineering and construction, communications, and institutional documentation. In addition, the final report provides an evaluation of the performance of the LYMMO by identifying current performance strengths and weaknesses, customer satisfaction, effectiveness of technology in meeting original project goals, and the benefits of the LYMMO to the downtown Orlando and Central Florida community. Finally, the report concludes with an overall assessment of the LYMMO’s various technology applications, financial feasibility compared to alternate public transit modes considered for downtown Orlando, the LYMMO’s operational performance, and overall performance of the LYMMO in meeting the original goals of the project.
