Animal Kingdom to Downtown Disney

How do we get to Downtown Disney from AK? We won't have a car so we were wondering does the Disney Transportation have a regular service that goes there or do we need to get a lynx bus or taxi (if so how much?). We are not staying on site.

You can get there by Disney Transport, you just can't go DIRECTLY from AK to DTD ... you'd need to transfer at a Disney resort hotel.

From AK, catch a bus to a resort, and once at that resort you can catch a bus to DTD. Geographically speaking, it will make sense for you to catch any bus EXCEPT buses going to the Magic Kingdom area resorts (Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary), Wilderness Lodge, Fort Wilderness Campground & Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Transportation & Ticket Center.

Those resorts I mentioned are WAAAAY out of the way if you're going from AK to DTD. And going to DHS, Epcot, and the TTC won't help you because there are no buses directly from those places to Downtown Disney.

So like I said, take a bus to any other resort. If you want options other than taking another bus from that resort to get to DTD, you can: take a bus to Saratoga Springs Resort, get off at SSR's internal Congress Park stop and walk to DTD from there; take a bus to SSR, Old Key West or Port Orleans French Quarter and take a boat from one of those resorts to DTD.
