Codiac Transpo is the urban transit service of the City of Moncton, operated on behalf of Moncton, the City of Dieppe and the Town of Riverview in New Brunswick, Canada.[2] The transit system provides express and local bus service for the residents of the Greater Moncton area and charter service throughout the southeastern area of the province. Maritime-wide bus service is provided by Maritime Bus.
