Wasaga Beach Transit is a public transportation system for the resort town of Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada. It is operated by Georgian Coach Lines, using municipally-owned buses. Service expanded from one route which was started in July, 2008 to two in the summer of 2009, because the bus system grew faster than anyone expected.[2]

Services for Wasaga Beach Transit occur in a loop from the Wasaga Stars Arena to the Real Canadian Superstore every hour from 7 AM to 7 PM. Buses serve the loop eastbound and westbound.

When the service was introduced, the town of Wasaga Beach created a contest to help design the logo for the transit service. A logo depicting a sun and a wave with the slogan 'Ride the Wave' was introduced as the contest winner.
