Corner Brook Transit (CBT) is a provider of public transportation to the residents of Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Municipally managed, the service is provided under contract by Murphy Brothers Bus Lines. There are two routes that run from 7am to 6pm Mon-Fri with destinations including Murphy Square and the downtown area. In response to declining ridership, a pilot project is set to be initiatied to reformulated the routes.[1]

The transit agency has instituted a NextBus realtime transit location system, which will provide data to internet and cell phone users on vehicle ETAs.[2] Cost for a ride on CBT is $2.50 for adults and $1.25 for children, passes can be bought at local stores and Corner Brook city hall

The fleet consists of three gasoline fueled Ford F-Series Cutaway buses. Two of the old diesel buses have been kept as back-ups.[3]
