Kings Transit Authority is a public transit agency operating buses in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. The system, incorporated in 1981, is funded by Kings County and the towns of Berwick, Wolfville and Kentville.

Kings Transit originally operated between Wolfville and Kentville, eventually expanding to Greenwood in western Kings County.

In 2000, the Municipality of the County of Annapolis funded the system's expansion to Bridgetown and eventually Annapolis Royal. The Municipality of the District of Digby funded the expansion of Kings Transit west to Weymouth, serving Upper Clements Park, Cornwallis Park and Digby. The Municipality of the District of West Hants funded the system's eastern expansion from Wolfville through Hantsport to Brooklyn.

Today the Kings Transit system consists of four routes, primarily travelling on Trunk 1 from Brooklyn to Weymouth.
