Public transit in Polk County is provided by the Lakeland Area Mass Transit District, operating as Citrus Connection, which includes all public transportation within the County including Winter Haven Area Transit, rural routes servicing Bartow, Fort Meade and Frostproof, as well as all paratransit service. For years, public transit was made up as three agencies operating independently of each other, creating some challenges for riders who want to utilize the transit system throughout the County. Today, those services, personnel and assets are together working to bring you a top quality transit system under one simplified banner, Citrus Connection.
