Greater Sudbury Transit is the public transit authority that operates buses in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. It was formed in 2001 during the amalgamation of the cities and towns of the Regional Municipality of Sudbury by combining the existing Sudbury bus service with the surrounding commuter bus lines of Rayside-Balfour, Valley East, and Walden.

History

The service was previously known as Sudbury Transit from January 1, 1972 to December 31, 2000. Then it was known as Greater Sudbury Transit from January 1, 2001 until August 25, 2019 when the entire system was renamed GOVA Transit as part of the massive restructuring of the city's transit service. This change took effect on August 26, 2019.
