Pine Hills Forward

The students of Future Leaders United are actively working alongside Lynx and the project manager of this project to ensure that their community has an input on this Transit Center that will soon be coming. The students have engaged in conversation that has ultimately fueled the design for the Center, both the United Foundation of Central Florida, Inc. and Future Leaders United have been listed as Partners to this Project

LYNX FORWARD: Pine Hills Transit Center

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) is undertaking the design and construction of a new transit center in the Pine Hills area located near the intersection of Belco Drive and Silver Star Road in Orange County. The Pine Hills Transit Center is a new prototype that is distinctly different from current LYNX open-air style facilities and offer numerous benefits to the commuters and surrounding community. Fulfilling the LYNX FORWARD goals, the Pine Hills Transit Center will promote economic competitiveness, sustainability and quality of life in the area while simultaneously advancing a dynamic transit system and delivering a seamless network of services by enhancing customer experiences.

PROJECT SPECIAL FEATURES

Pine Hills Transit Center is anticipated to be a new prototype that is distinctly different from current LYNX open-air style facilities.  In addition to protecting customers from inclement weather conditions, the facility will be a highly visible architectural element with the ability to enhance the unique identity of Pine Hills.  Extensive coordination with Orange County and the local community is anticipated.

At minimum, the transit center will require:

  • Space for 8-10 buses, including articulated 60-foot buses, and circulation drive

  • Integration with the Pine Hills Trail

  • Amenities to include, but not be limited to:

    • Potential for 50,000 square foot building to serve passengers and the community

    • Bus pass purchase

    • Real time arrival and departure information

    • Safety and Security improvements

    • Off board fare payment such as mobile ticketing

    • Pick up/Drop Off area with parking

    • Bicycle parking/bike share

Our approach to the design of the Pine Hills Transit Center is based on what we call the five D’s of Design – Desires, Discovery, Discussion, Design, and Documentation. The step by step approach is shown in the flow chart below.

Phase 1 of the design effort is intended to include public outreach and input for the design elements of the transit center resulting in conceptual plans, cost estimates, and design specifications. Phase 2 will include Final Design which will include engineering drawings, permitting, and continued public input for final design. Phase 3 will be construction.
