855-POLKBUS (855-765-5287)

Public transit in Polk County is provided by Lakeland Area Mass Transit District, operating as Citrus Connection, Winter Haven Area Transit and Polk County Transit Services, operated through Polk County. For years each entity has operated independently of each other, creating some challenges for riders who want to utilize the transit system throughout the County. Today the focus is bringing all public transit providers together under one simplified banner, Citrus Connection.
