Orillia Transit is operated by Tok Transit Limited under contract to the City of Orillia, Ontario. Orillia Wheelchair Limousine Service (OWLS) is the name of the paratransit service.

History

[1]

Orillia has had transit service since the 1950s when a private operator, Orillia Transportation Company, started to provide local bus service to the city. Responsibility for the service was assumed by the City in 1975 and in 1978 a specialized transit service for persons with disabilities was introduced.

The initial operating contract was awarded to Penetang-Midland Coach Lines in 1976, and the contract eventually went to First Student Canada.

On July 1, 2017, Tok Transit Limited became the new contractor.
