The current bus terminal at Lynx Central Station opened in 2004. It is the central hub of the Lynx network, servicing nearly 30 separate bus routes. The 18,000-square-foot (1,700 m2) terminal has an air-conditioned waiting area, with access to the zero-fare Lymmo bus (Link 31) in Downtown Orlando.
The station is one of two SunRail commuter rail stations serving downtown Orlando, the other being Church Street Station. It provides easy transfer for SunRail commuters to the nearly 30 Lynx bus routes at the station. It will also be the hub for any future expansion of the SunRail system. The station is located along the former CSX A-Line (originally constructed by the South Florida Railroad) and is typical of most SunRail stations featuring canopies consisting of white aluminum poles supporting sloped green roofs and includes ticket vending machines, ticket validators, emergency call boxes, drinking fountains, and separate platforms designed for passengers in wheelchairs. A transit-oriented development called Crescent Central Station is located adjacent to the station and features a 280-unit, multi-story luxury apartment community along with 14,600 square feet of retail space.
