OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - Officials on Thursday opened a new transportation hub aimed at overhauling travel around Osceola County.

The new Lynx station is at the intersection of Pleasant Street and Neptune Road.

Lynx CEO John Lewis told Channel 9 they're working hard to keep up with a huge demand for public transportation in Osceola County and the new bus station is part of that effort.

In January, Lynx moved eight routes to the facility next to the Kissimmee Amtrack station. 

The eight-bay transfer station now serves as the hub for all transit services in the county with the main goal to move people faster.

"Having a centralized hub here in Kissimmee really allows us to bring those routes together at one location and people can make quick connections," said Lewis. "You are going from one side of the station to another rather than wait for that bus on the corner."

During peak services, at least 17 buses have been using the facility per hour. From there, passengers can also easily transfer to over to Amtrack, a Greyhound bus, and if all goes according to plan, someday SunRail.
