Whatcom Transportation Authority or WTA provides transit service to Whatcom County, Washington, with service focused on the city of Bellingham. Fixed route, paratransit, and vanpool service is operated.

Between 1971 and 1984, transit service in Bellingham was operated by the city owned Bellingham Municipal Transit System. In August 1983, a countywide public transportation benefit area was established by Whatcom County voters, and the city bus system was absorbed into WTA when operations began on January 1, 1984.
