Our citizens and visitors rely on varied modes of transportation to live, work, and play. A reliable and balanced intermodal transportation system is critical to the economic livelihood of our community. Orange County Government is now coordinating with several Regional Transportation Partners to plan, develop, and operate this transportation system.
FDOT, the Florida Department of Transportation, plans and manages all modes of the State’s transportation system including State roads and Florida’s Turnpike System.
The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority operates the Orlando International Airport and the Orlando Executive Airport with a mission of advancing Orlando and Central Florida as the premier inter-modal transportation gateway for global commerce.
I-Ride is an iconic tourist-oriented trolley that operates in the International Drive Resort Area. This service is managed by the International Drive Master Transit and Improvement District, which is an innovative public-private partnership between Orange County, the City of Orlando, and the International Drive business community.
