Description

The Lynx Central Station, located at 455 North Garland Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida, during renovations in 2004. The former bus station was located at 78 West Central Boulevard, which is the site of City of Orlando Fire Station No. 1 as of 2013.

Lynx is operated by the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (CFRTA) and serves the Greater Orlando area, including Orange County, Seminole County, and Osceola County, as well as limited service to Lake County, Volusia County, and Polk County. The CFRTA was formed in May 1972 under the name the Orange-Seminole-Osceola Transportation Authority (OSOTA). In 1984, the bus service was renamed the Tri-Country Transit (TCT). In 1992, the TCT began operating as Lynx and the OSOTA's name was officially changed to the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority. The Lynx Central Station was opened in 2004 and serves as the central hub of the bus network. The station is expected to serve as a station for the SunRail.
