Lynx is the official site of the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority, responsible the coordination of public transportation for the counties of Orange, Osceola and Seminole. Originally, a small company running four bus routes in the city of Orlando, in the early 1930s, Lynx has constantly expanded over the years to become what it is today.
It boasts a fleet of 290 buses, which cover 65 routes or “Links”, as they are referred to. They operate on a 24/7 basis. Lynx holds a record-breaking position in Florida, with regard to number of passenger trips operated. It’s an eye-catching site, divided into three main sections: Commuters, with information on commuter services, fares and passes as well as other transportation services; Communities, providing news and information about events and promotions, as well as public notices. Last but not least, there’s the Administrative section concerning advertising, contracting, employment, the board of directors and Lynx employees. Visitors to the site can make use of a number of tools, such as the Trip Planner, which is in an experimental stage, maps, schedules, shopping, and job opportunities.
