St. Thomas Transit Services includes both conventional city transit buses and paratransit vehicles owned by the City of St. Thomas, Ontario and staffed and operated by Voyageur Transportation, who took over the service from Aboutown Transportation on 1 January 2012.
Private companies have provided a variety of transportation services to the city since the introduction of horse drawn street railways in 1879, which were subsequently electrified and ultimately replaced by buses about 1927. Although the city assumed responsibility for transit in the mid-1960s, these bus services have always been privately operated.
The Transit Operational Centre is located downtown at 614 Talbot Street. The stop for Aboutown's Northlink intercity bus service to London and Owen Sound has been relocated to Factory Muffler, 210 Talbot Street. The Northlink service to London was cancelled December 2013.
