Fort McMurray Transit is a public transportation system provided by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, in northeastern Alberta, Canada. Services consist of local scheduled bus routes, specialized transportation for people with disabilities and school buses, all within the urban areas of Fort McMurray,[3] the only major population centre in the region.

Routes[edit]

24 regular bus routes operate every day with two additional weekday rush hour routes to the main industrial areas and a special Saturday service for people in Saprae Creek. The system has reduced weekend service and does not operate at all on most holidays.[3]
