The Mission Revival-style station has been in continuous use since ,  first for the Atlantic Coast Line , then the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad signage for which is still displayed over the station's main entrance. Orlando also serves as a transfer hub for Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach bus service. Orlando Station has the highest Amtrak ridership in the state, with the exception of the Auto Train depot located in nearby Sanford.
In , federal and state funding was granted for the establishment of SunRail , a local commuter rail service, to operate on the former CSX "A" line tracks between DeLand and Poinciana , passing through the downtown area and surrounding urban neighborhoods along the way. The service is expected to substantially reduce traffic congestion along the I-4 corridor, especially between Downtown Orlando and the suburban communities in Seminole and Volusia Counties.
The counties involved approved local matching funds in and the line was originally projected to begin operations in Although there had been growing concern the system would be scrapped, a deadline extension combined with a new insurance arrangement with CSX brought new hope that SunRail will be completed after all. SunRail began passenger service on May 1, Attempts to establish a smaller light rail service for the Orlando area were also considered at one time, [ when? The first stage would have connected Orlando and Tampa, Florida and was expected to be completed by The second stage was to connect Orlando and Miami, Florida.
Rick Scott in , and on March 4, , the Florida Supreme Court unanimously turned down the request of two state senators to force Scott to accept federal funding for the project. A privately funded initiative known as All Aboard Florida , which would provide high-speed rail service from Miami to Orlando, was announced in March Lynx provides local transit service covering a five-county area: Orange , Seminole , Osceola , Polk, and Volusia.
Greyhound Lines offers intercity bus service from Orlando to multiple locations across the country. Orlando is served by a collection of independently owned taxi companies. In downtown Orlando, taxis can be hailed on a regular basis. Orlando also has service from car sharing companies like Uber and Lyft, which offers service at all airports. Transportation between the Orlando International Airport and various locations in and around Orlando are provided by airport shuttle services.
Several shuttles operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Orlando has nine international sister cities as listed by the City of Orlando Office of International Affairs. Given Orlando's status as a busy international tourist destination and growing industrial and commercial base, there are several foreign consulates and honorary consulates in Orlando including Argentina, Colombia, Czech Republic, Haiti, Mexico, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the Ivory Coast. As a result, Orlando now has the second-highest number of foreign consulates in Florida next to Miami.

Gotta keep pockets lined in perpetuity with never-ending maintenance and expansion. Oh, they've solved that whole budget thing around me. Every new road being built is a fucking toll road.
Problem solved. There was hardly any road traffic last week when kids were on spring break, proving just how much of an impact school alone can be with congestion. We have high-speed internet at home, inexpensive VPN technology, and cloud collaboration. Companies have the capacity to support remote work. They refuse to do so. Same goes with high school. Millions could be saved if we converted high-school to virtual school. We have the technology already today to fix the congestion problem. The real problem is ignorance and refusal to embrace it. Going to school at a kid is a way to socialize them Kids today are already being more and more isolated due in large part to them not playing outside as much as kids, and with nothing but social apps and texting as means to connect with others, rather than talking in person.
If you didn't throw them together physically in the school systems, you're exacerbate a problem we're already seeing that is having a harmful effect on the younger generations that don't have good real life, in person social skills. Well, sure, but "walking out" of your own home all by yourself to make some political point would hardly be as exciting Remote work isn't all it's cracked up to be. Or, rather, maybe it works well for some work styles and personality types. But it definitely does not work for everyone.
I had a job a while back where the company closed it's office in the city and put those of up who didn't want to relocate and take a pay cut on full-time work from home. It was nice at first. No commute, no rush, more time with the dogs. Not quite. It's a problem that isn't solvable by some government design, but only solvable through some very strict control of actions road rules and we all love those.
Consider someone who's unhappy that the traffic is doing 50 in a 60 zone and there's a free lane to the left that is ending. He jumps in, goes to the front and then merges back. Selfishness for using the infrastructure when what he has done is cause a brake-light wave to propagate through the traffic behind him making it worse. The same applies to short-cutting. Taking one of those shortcuts often may end you on a sensor light that otherwise wouldn't impede traffic. The solution to that is either to put in dead-end streets piss off everyone or put in place "local traffic only" rules piss off people who are anti-government and think just because they pay taxes they can do what they want.
Zipper merging is effectively using both lanes until reaching the obstruction, then merging calmly into the open lane. Oh don't worry, governments will react. People use residential areas for through-traffic? No problem, let's make a 10mph speed limit with 4-way-stops at every intersection, huge speed bumps every other yards and whatever else is necessary to make using them as inconvenient as possible. Thanks to Waze, Dr. It doesn't even need to be that. It could be his own street, in small quiet suburbia, once safe to let your kids run around on has now turned into a highway.
Google tells me to do just that every day, rather than drive the m further to go down the highway it takes me through a school zone where I can run slalom between cars and kids. It's more than just one person getting to work a little more slowly. The road system is designed to manage traffic, for the benefit of more than just the drivers. People living in residential areas with children and pets, road surfaces that are not suitable for heavy use, keeping pollution away from more sensitive areas, preventing jams building up earlier so that people who come a bit later e.
Or in these days of opiate overprescription where people want something a little stronger, Bayer Heroin TM. Get over with it. Instead of sending everybody on the same route, send them probabilistically. I suspect Waze already does that, verified several times experimentally. But there are two options - allow or penalise. If you need that amount of traffic to get to a place, you need a road, and side-roads, and feeder-roads and sink-roads that can take the capacity PLUS MORE. If you don't WANT that amount of traffic then you have to penalise it. One way systems.
Literally traffic is it's own limiter - if it takes you an. I think a big part of traffic problems is that urban planners have become ideologically opposed to cars and have begun to array urban planning tools against cars to make driving difficult.

We get "traffic calming" which translates as lanes removed and parking removed in favor of dedicated bike lanes it's also snowy and below freezing about 4 months out of the year. The hope is people will find driving so difficult they give up cars for bikes or transit without considering that both are a poor substitute for cars in many cases -- distance, poor transit systems, weather, need to carry packages, etc. I'll grant them that suburban car-centric planning is a disaster, but mostly I consider it just pseudo-planning.
To this day there are suburban shopping areas where it's like 5 large tenants built buildings and lots and whatever adjoining space was left becomes a "road" which results in absurdities like requiring 4 left turns to get anywhere. I just figure there has to be a middle way that's not so anti-car it makes things impossible but not so pro car you wind up with a wasteland of roads.
Theory: see above Practice: Planners will see where people go to escape the "planned" routes and turn through-roads into dead ends and what cannot be corked up gets slowed down with speed limits around walking speed and speed bumps with the size of mountains. Our city is in the middle of promoting high density urban villages. With condos and apartments on the upper floors and businesses on the street.
You start making deliveries at 2AM and residents will burn your trucks to the ground. One is the optimal case where information is realtime and possibly even anticipates group movement: if everyone uses one of these realtime routing apps, then traffic spreads out. It will be faster but it will use all the available routes. The other people, including the people trying to manage traffic and who want to strictly guide it along the path they want, simply don't like that.
Who else saw this and immediately remembered the line about "but because everyone else was also trying to push forwards through the crowd"? In Germany in some streets, where traffic is impossible, neighbors put all their old cellphones in the mailbox near the street and claim there's a complete traffic stop, to try to move the traffic to another neighborhood, which, I'm sure, does the very same thing. Just guessing here. But that road has residents and businesses around it since All who have a vested interest in not having their neighborhood dug up to accommodate more outside traffic.
Not that this is a good thing. Back in , the gas station for example wanted to be on the street corner. For more traffic. But smarter developers and gas station customers have since realized that corner lots are absolute shit when it comes to access. The only people who aren't smart are the people ha. If someone leaves a major highway to try a back road, isn't that a hint that the major highway is full of traffic?
So I'm interpreting this report as noticing that all the extra cars on the road are filling up the back roads, since the major highways are about as full as they can handle.

Yup, that was also my impression, specially regarding apps that try to be "smart" and guess where traffic is stuck. Be it apps that leverage big data Waze is supposed to autolearn traffic fluidity. And thus end up advertising completely stupid routes, just because they happen to look shorter on the map, and are tagged with the same speed limit e. Google Maps has been an offender in my experience probably I live on the wrong side of the atlantic pond regarding to where has their cloud the most informations about , as from time to time even specialised satnav vendor such as Tomtom Yes, I know that the pass through the montain seems much shorter on the map than taking the highway aroudn the whole mountain.
But it's winter and the pass might not even be open.
Has been even studied, with some studies showing that 1 single shared non-autonomous car, replaces 4 cars. So if autonomous cars rise in numbers, that will decrease the total flow of car and actually result in lest congestionned small streets. Not more. The issue I have with that is that relies on 4 different people using the car at different times. In reality it doesn't work that way as people tend to work 9 to 5 and the problem with congestion isn't the number of registered cars, it's the number of cars at use at the same time during peak hours.
Autonomous cars wont fix that because the same number of people will need to be going at the same time. Autonomous cars will not reduce congestion for this reason, also people don't like sharing cars. I know its. If my app drives my car ten miles farther to avoid a constant traffic snarl that takes 12 minutes to ge through, i save two minutes. My car drives another ten miles.

I am disrupting traffic at my usual places plus ten miles of circuitous but time optimal for me. Maybe i make a hundred people one second slower for each extra mile i drive. That's a thousand people seconds. Which means my saving two minutes just cost you sixteen minutes if you are the designated scape goat of the day.
You will then do the same to me and a thousand others. Net result, we have three traffic snarls and but 45 mins getting through them while driving twice as far. Bc f u i got mine. Even if i no longer do a year later bc everyone else does the same tragedy of the commons shit. Road network capacity is vehicles over time. If you spend 2 minutes less on the road then you are taking less road capacity. Even if you add to congestion elsewhere, you are reducing congestion on your normal route, so you are not adding to overall congestion. Unless you decide to engage in frequent behaviors that cause hard breaking for other vehicles ie cutting people off only on alternate routes and not on your main route, taking a longer but faster route should reduce overall congestion and help everyone get to their destinations faster.
As a 'good' alternate route is one that has little or no congestion, the preferred scenario of taking an alternate route should not involve additional congestion for anyone because you would want to select a route that is far enough below capacity that it is not congested to get the best speed. From what I've read, the big problem in Florida used to be the way road construction was funded. From that point, the remainder of the p.
I'm wondering if they are taking into account the overall general increase in the total number of vehicles on the road.

Not necessarily. Here in the UK there are two major motorways which Waze will happily route you off one onto a reasonably quiet residential road to join up with the other. The alternative would just be to stick on the first motorway and switch to the second motorway.

However t. Of course, he seems to have forgotten that just perhaps what these things are doing, as most of them are now traffic sensitive, is maximizing the throughput of the ENTIRE roading system. What he actually seems to have his proverbial panties in a twist about is 'we are not following the rules the traffic planners pre-decided for us, oh no! It is a bit less convenient for people who live in those areas? Planners have always created residential streets which are meant only for local traffic, not through-traffic.
That is wholly a good thing, because maybe people who live there for one, don't want all the noise and pollution there is a reason why freeways are surrounded by walls, and why generally one's back yard does not face a freeway directly, without obstruction , and for two, they might want to use that street for something other than a mass of cars flowing through e.
I'm always fascinated by people who, once they get in their car, think the entire world or at least every road is just empty space that is supposed to have one use and one use only - to get them to their destination What this study shows is that you can't fix an overcongested road system with optimization alternative routes, self-driving cars, whatever. If there are too many cars on the road for the network to handle, you will get traffic jams. Simple as that. Now, experience from the last 60 years or so shows that widening roads generally does not help - it's only a short-term fix, and if you add a lane, it will soon be filled up.
Unless it's - wait for it - a bus lane. So the answer is more bus lanes - and more buses - and more public transit in general - not less. That's because experience shows that if you've got a city with millions of people living in it, the proper way to organize it is 1 build it at high density and 2 move people around primarily using high-capacity public transit, not cars. This is exactly the opposite of the way California does it, and in her sprawling car-oriented suburbia, no amount of extra freeways, intelligent GPS machine-learning routing apps, or smart self-driving cars is going to fix traffic problems.

As long as the approach is the same, the results will be the same - traffic jams, traffic jams, traffic jams. There is simply a tipping point in terms of population where a primarily car-based transport system becomes inefficient. Assuming the schedule is posted, it's often illegible due to age or the scratches on the cheap plexiglass the stations use for posting it. The busses here all have digital displays at the bus stops telling you when the next three buses will arrive, as well as timetables posted online.
They still suck for other reasons, but that's largely due to the fact that most people here cycle and a bus is only faster than a bicycle over relatively long distances. In the UK, it's because we privatised them and expect them to run at a profit. This means that the fairs go up and so fewer people ride them. Then they become less frequent, and so fewer people ride them.
Eventually they reach an equilibrium where only people that can't afford any of the alternatives take them. Then people complain that they would take the bus, if only they run more frequently and weren't so expensive. Every time someone takes a bus instead of driving, that's less traffic, less air po. Most metro areas that are a couple hundred thousand people and up now have realtime apps for their bus systems.
