The New Transit Direction (TNTD) is an indie band from Salt Lake City in Utah, USA, formed in 2000.

The band has performed as an opening act with The Used, Taking Back Sunday, The Blood Brothers and Form of Rocket.

After releasing an EP called New Transit Direction, the band signed a record deal with Some Records. Their first album, Wonderful Defense Mechanisms, was produced and mixed by John Congleton (90 Day Men, The Paper Chase) and was released in 2004.

Quinn Allman of The Used is reportedly friends with all the members of the band and regards it as an influence.

Kilby Court, an all-ages venue in Salt Lake City, has been described by the band as "home".

The drummer, Dan Whitesides, has replaced Brandon Steineckert as the new drummer in The Used.
