Transport - There are many different types
of transport around Orlando, and loads of shuttle
buses to the main Theme Parks and Attractions. Orlando
is a “spread out” city and so in general
walking is not a great option – but you will
do lots of walking within each attraction even tho
they do provide internal transport! A rental
car is of value for moving from your hotel
accommodation to the various parks and sights and
Orlando is geared for car hire as all attractions
provide ample parking.
Be sure and check out shuttle buses to the
attraction you are planning to go to. There
are many of these and they may include your hotel
for pickups. Of course in the Parks, there are several
ways to get from one part to another.
Orlando also has a good public transport system.
The bus service is run by Lynx. Lynx provides
about 60 routes throughout the city and covers
many of the key attractions serving Orange, Oseola
and Seminole counties. The Lynx buses have wheelchair
access. They make a great photo as they are brightly
coloured. They run almost around the clock. You can
go to www.golynx.com
for further information. Fares are $1.25-$1.50 for
trip of up to 90 minutes (including transfers) or
you can get a one day ticket for $3. There is also
a I-Trolley service – a Main
Line and a Green Line, they run every 20 or 30 minutes
in the International Drive Area. A one way ticket
on the trolley is 75 cents. So far Orlando has no
rail system within the city.
Or do you want to move around by Pedicab?
These bicycle-taxis/rickshaws are great fun. They
take up to four people and are free (but you can tip).
They are available in the Downtown Area from Tuesday
