Owen Sound Transit provides local bus service and specialized transit for the city of Owen Sound, Ontario, which is located at the southwest end of Georgian Bay.

Both of those services operate out of the downtown transit terminal. Regular bus service consists of a four route system with daytime operations from Monday through Saturday. All four routes provide a half hourly service on Monday to Friday between 6:30 am and 6:00 pm, with a less frequent Saturday service between 9:00 am and 5:30 pm.
