Citrus Connection is the public transit system of Lakeland, Florida, operated by the Lakeland Area Mass Transit District (LAMTD). The system operates a fleet of 33 buses on 14 routes in the Lakeland area, including service provided for Winter Haven Area Transit to the neighboring cities of Auburndale, Winter Haven and Bartow.

The system also operates paratransit service with 15 Handy buses.

Citrus Connection has operated since 1982. LAMTD is financed by a property tax and by funding from federal, state and city government.

In September 2008, the Polk Transit Authority was established with a view to the eventual consolidation of the LAMTD and Winter Haven Area Transit, and the extension of transit service throughout Polk County.[1][2]
