Société de transport de Sherbrooke (STS) provides public transit services to Sherbrooke, the only major city in the Eastern Townships (Estrie) of Quebec, Canada. After the almagamation of what are now neighbouring boroughs into a regional municipality in 2002, service was expanded to cover the entire city with 32 routes and a fleet of more than 80 buses. STS is owned and operated by the city.
