About Us

What is the International Drive Business Improvement District?

Created in 1992, it is a special taxing district formed under a public-private initiative with Orange County, the City of Orlando and the businesses of the International Drive Resort Area. Recognized as an outstanding example of cooperation between three distinct entities, this is the first district of this type established in Florida and is now used by other regions as a model. The district is comprised of three separate Municipal Service Taxing Units (MSTU) that are jointly operated under this unique partnership by a Governing Board and an Advisory Board.

What does the District do?

We are charged with planning, designing, and operating a transit service exclusive to the International Drive Resort Area businesses that are within the boundaries of the District taxing units, as well as the marketing and promotional efforts of area businesses as a single, cohesive destination. We make recommendations to local and state government agencies to reduce traffic congestion, enhance pedestrian safety and increase overall mobility and security for the entire District. Finally, we implement marketing and promotion programs such as:
  • InternationalDriveOrlando.com and IRideTrolley.com
  • The International Drive Resort Area Official Visitors Guide
  • I-RIDE Trolley Map - Your Guide to Dining, Shopping & Playing on I-Drive!
  • The I-Drive Hot Deals Discount Program

Who is on the Governing Board?

  • Chairperson: The Honorable Teresa Jacobs, Orange County Mayor
  • Orange County: Commissioner Victoria Siplin, Orange County - District 6
  • City of Orlando: Commissioner Samuel B. Ings, City of Orlando - District 6

Who is on the Advisory Board?
