LYNX is a bus system run by the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority, serving the greater Orlando, Florida area, Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties with limited service to Polk county. Bus routes are referred to as Links.
Founded in May 1972 as Orange Seminole Osceola Transportation Authority (OSOTA), the agency became known as Tri-County Transit in 1984. The agency then began doing business as LYNX in 1992 and changed the official name to the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority in March 1994.
More than 105,000 passengers board LYNX buses each and every day – evidence of how vital an efficiently operating transit system is to our region’s overall economic success and quality of life. Maintaining high-quality operations and delivering the finest service possible is critically important to the LYNX board, and serves as the foundation for our daily efforts. The LYNX system not only supports the community by supporting new and existing businesses, LYNX also assists in providing access to our ever-expanding cultural, sports and recreation venues, including the under-construction Orlando City Lions Soccer Club stadium.
