Woodstock Transit provides transit and paratransit service to the City of Woodstock, Ontario.

History

Woodstock, Thames Valley and Ingersoll Electric Railway Company was the earliest operator in Woodstock, initially an interurban car from November 8, 1900 to October 31, 1925, and then intercity coaches from November 2, 1925 to 1942. A number of private operators operated a local service starting in the 1930s, including City Bus Lines, which operated from 1940 until February 8, 1941. Bluebird Coach Lines provided transit and intercity service from June 1942 until January 1951.[1]

After another period of numerous unsuccessful private operators through the early 1950s, Woodstock was left without transit service until 1962 and the beginning of municipally-operated Woodstock Transit. A year long trial service had begun on December 6, 1961.[2]
