City of Commerce Municipal Bus (also known as City of Commerce Transit) is a small bus operator in the city of Commerce, California, located southeast of downtown Los Angeles. The city of Commerce operates five bus routes throughout the city from Monday to Saturday, with two routes in operation on Sunday.
