The City of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board/Community Redevelopment Agency has extended their Rideshare Hub pilot program for an additional six months. It originally launched May 3, 2019.
The program supports downtown’s vibrant nighttime economy by enhancing the downtown experience and improving traffic and safety in the area. The hubs operate Friday and Saturday nights Midnight to 3 a.m.
The hubs, a first of its kind transportation concept in the nation, offers dedicated pick-up lanes for cabs and rideshare drivers to help more efficiently move people out of downtown during late night hours. The hubs feature enhanced lighting, dedicated security, and mobile food vendors.
The Magnolia Avenue hub near Heritage Square features public restrooms, enhanced lighting, dedicated security, and mobile food vending. The Gertrude's Avenue hub near Jefferson and Washington Streets feature enhanced lighting, dedicated security, public restrooms (coming), and mobile food vending.
