The year 1989 saw the creation of the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (CFRTA) under section 343.63 of the Florida Statutes. In 1993 amendments were made allowing the authority to perform tasks previously reserved for the Central Florida Commuter Rail Authority. CFRTA could also merge with other local public transport providers, such as Orange-Seminole-Osceola Transportation d/b/a LYNX. This merger was fully effective in October 1, 1994. It provided a one-stop transportation system while maintaining LYNX as the business name.
