Burlington Transit is the public transport provider in the city of Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Services began in September 1975, after the city had been served by neighbouring systems including Hamilton Street Railway (H.S.R), and former subsidiary Canada Coach Lines, as well as "local" services to and from Toronto once provided by Gray Coach Lines and GO Transit along Lakeshore Road (Highway 2).
Burlington Transit is a member of the Canadian Urban Transit Association.
It connects with Hamilton Street Railway on the south and west and Oakville Transit on the east. In addition, the Appleby, Burlington, and Aldershot GO Transit stations on the Lakeshore West line are also connected. The Bus Terminal, located in downtown at 430 John Street, close to Lakeshore Road (Highway 2), is the main bus terminal, and the Greyhound Canada bus stop in Burlington. The transit yard and administration centre is situated at 3332 Harvester Road.

|Location||430 John St, Burlington|
The bus terminal is located in downtown Burlington on John Street, just north of Pine Street. The terminal is an on-street facility with northbound and southbound curbside busbays and a customer service building on the west side of the street. As well as being an important central transfer location for Burlington Transit and a terminus for Hamilton Street Railway service, it is also the Greyhound bus depot. GO Transit buses do not stop here, because of frequent train and bus service to the railway stations within the city.
