The car is even king in Orlando, and it is a very facile and convenient (if not congested) way to go to your destination. The roads are all big and facile to drive on with all the major areas signposted, but traffic jams around downtown are usual in the afternoons and about the tourists areas on Saturday nights.
Public transportation of Orlando is the Lynx bus service. About 60 routes run the metro Orlando area and costs $1.50 per ride (transfers contained) except for the Lymmo bus service is Orlando’s only public transport, but it extend most of the city, Orlando International Airport, the theme parks and most of the principal tourist areas. The routes are represented by pink paw-print signs. One, seven and 30-day passes are available, all of which symbolize significant savings if you get more than two regular-price journeys a day. Link 51 operates from the airport to downtown Orlando; Link 42 goes from the airport to International Drive, Link 50 operates from downtown to Disney’s Magic Kingdom; Link 56 runs from Kissimmee’s Highway 192 to the Magic Kingdom; and Link 38 operates from International Drive to downtown.
Taxis are usual in all areas. Three of the biggest taxi firms are Star Taxis, Diamond Cab Co and Yellow/City Cab.
Driving in the City
Most attractions are well sign-posted and facile to find on Orlando’s road system but traffic can be very ponderous on key routes in the morning (0800-0930) and evening (1600-1800). Motorway I-4 is the key east-west route but should be kept off at rush hour, while International Drive can also be severely congested in the evening. Universal Boulevard is a good option. To the south, Highway 192 is the principal route to Disney from the busy Kissimmee area, but (toll) Osceola Parkway is often a better bet.
