With 72 million visitors a year, Orlando has perfected the art of getting to and from here and is easily accessible to the entire globe. The region is home to three international airports, including Orlando International Airport which is the third largest origin and destination airport in the U.S.
Orlando’s business environment is strengthened by the presence of a world-class international airport that is consistently recognized for excellence in customer service, and six other regional airports that provide travelers with a variety of options. Detailed information on each of these airports is found below.

On land, the region sits at the crossroads of Florida’s highway network, serving as a hub for distribution. SunRail, the region’s commuter rail system, runs 31 miles from Volusia to Orange County and will eventually connect 61 miles into Osceola County. Also forthcoming is the All Aboard Florida train connecting Miami to Orlando. All of that connectivity is invaluable for business.
Florida’s Turnpike and Interstate 4 bisect in Orlando. The I-4 Ultimate construction project is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the nation. The 21-mile makeover — from west of Kirkman Road in Orange County to east of State Road 434 in Seminole County — will transform the region.
Other major state roadways include U.S. 441, 17/92, 27 and 192.
Toll roads include State Road 528, State Road 408, State Road 417 and State Road 429 — 100 miles encircling Orlando. Wekiva Parkway, the final portion of the toll beltway, is under construction. The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise manage this network and operates an electronic toll collection system known as E-PASS, one of the first and most widely-used systems of its kind in the U.S.
The 12.5-mile Osceola Parkway links the international airport to major attractions and a half dozen regional arterial highways.
LYNX, an extensive public transportation system, serves Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. LYNX is the first transit agency in the nation to build, produce and utilize its own B-20 Biodiesel blend for bus fleet conversion and the first to distribute B-20 to other regional agencies.
Lymmo is a state-of-the-art, three-mile, dedicated lane bus system in downtown Orlando, available free-of-charge.
The first phase of SunRail, a commuter rail transit project that runs along a 32-mile stretch through Orange, Seminole and Volusia, began service in May 2014 with 9,000+ daily ridership in its first week. The second phase, which will extend the line further north in Volusia County and south into Osceola County, began construction in early 2016. The project is a result of collaboration among the Florida Department of Transportation; federal government; Orange, Seminole, Volusia and Osceola counties; and the City of Orlando.
Amtrak provides passenger service from the Orlando region to many cities in the U.S. If you want your car where you’re going and you just don’t want to drive it all the way there, bring it aboard the Auto Train with service between Sanford, FL and Lorton, VA. Amtrak has many partnership programs with other travel-oriented corporations that can make traveling easier. These partnerships include: Continental Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Icelandair, AAA, Hertz and Greyhound.
