Wasaga Beach Transit is a public transportation system for the resort town of Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada. It was formerly operated by Georgian Coach Lines from 2008 to 2014 and currently contracted to Sinton-Landmark[1] 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]

Buses serve the loop eastbound and westbound.Transit service in Wasaga Beach is operated by Georgian Coach Lines, using town-owned buses, under the name Wasaga Beach Transit.
