Durham Region Transit

(Ajax-Pickering-Oshawa-Whitby-Clarington, Ontario)

As of January 1, 2006 the former transit agencies which consisted of Ajax-Pickering Transit Authority, Clarington Transit, Oshawa Transit and Whitby Transit as well as handitrans services were amalgamated into one regional entity, that entity being Durham Region Transit. With amalgamation of other transit systems in and around the Greater Toronto Area, the Regional Municipality of Durham decided to follow suit in order to better provide transit service to its customers as well as become a bigger transit body which would receive better funding from the provincial government.
