Central Florida Regional Transit Study
The Central Florida Regional Transit Study was completed to develop a consensus-driven regional transit vision for a ten-county region in Central Florida including Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia Counties. The scope of the study included: establishing a base transit condition, identifying gaps in regional transit connections, identifying existing and future funding gaps and potential funding sources, identifying and analyzing existing transit supportive plans and policies, estimating regional travel desire lines and transit market demand for years 2040 and 2060, identifying strong candidate corridors for higher capacity transit investments, identifying a conceptual regional transit framework including interim and long-term priority transit investments, and the development of strategies for advancing the conceptual regional transit vision framework.
Year 2040 and 2060 transit vision framework recommendations included a mix of public and private transit services and facilities designed to complete a network of mobility services linking ten counties, six public transit providers and multiple statewide and regional private transit providers. The future 2040 and 2060 transit vision plans include the extension of committed and uncommitted transit improvements identified in the six Metropolitan Planning Organization Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs) plus public and private transit services and facilities linking the region through addressing the highest demand mobility needs. Recommendations include development of regional transit hubs served and supported by both public and private service providers.
