LYNX is a bus system run by the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority, serving the Orlando, Florida region. Bus routes are referred to as Links. Standard adult one-way fare is $2.00 with free single transfers valid for 90 minutes (not valid on the same Link or for round trips). LYNX runs the zero-fare LYMMO Bus (Link 31) in Downtown Orlando, connecting many downtown destinations to parking and the new LYNX Central Station by controlling traffic signals on a three-mile route along a fully separate right-of-way. All LYNX buses (Links), except the LYMMO, have bike racks (2 bike capacity) for use at no extra charge.

Bus stop signs are designed with a lynx paw in place of the traditional bus stop signs, which show a bus; although, some new signs have been placed, adding the paw to the traditional sign. Also, the route numbers (Links) are usually attached to the bus stop signs.

History

Bus stop on North Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida

The Central Florida Regional Transit Authority was formed in May 1972 under the name Orange-Seminole-Osceola Transportation Authority. The bus service was originally named Tri-County Transit, or TCT for short. The authority changed its name in 1994 to LYNX via a public naming contest.

The agency opened LYNX Central Station in 2004 and a new operations center in 2007.

LYNX changed, added, and eliminated routes and schedules several times throughout its history. The latest updates were implemented on January 6, March 30, August 17, and December 7, 2008; and April 26, August, and December 6, 2009, which affected many routes. See LYNX Official Website for route and schedule changes.

Lymmos are also equipped with bike racks. A few racks hold 3 bicycles.
