GOVA Transit is the public transit authority serving Greater Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. As part of an overhaul of their service, Greater Sudbury Transit was rebranded as GOVA on August 26, 2019. The name is a play on the words “Go” and “Va” in French. Improvements to the system include higher frequency, better Sunday and late evening service, easier to understand schedules and route information, better connections, and transferable 31-Day Pass.[1]
