Oakville Transit is the public transportation provider in Oakville, Ontario, Canada since 1972. It is a department of the town, and a member of the Canadian Urban Transit Association. It offers the typical conventional bus service, and a para-transit service, called care-A-van, for those unable to use the conventional service. The care-A-van takes riders directly to the address they desire.

Off-Peak Service: During the late evenings, and on Sundays, most of the fixed routes are replaced by the Zone Express. The southern area of the town is divided into four zones (basically east and west of Oakville GO/Trafalgar Road, and north and south of the Queen Elizabeth Way). While the operators will accept riders at the key transfer points, there is telephone (905-849-ZONE) correspondence in order to pick up and drop off riders at designated Oakville Transit stops, or transfer onto the other buses at the Oakville GO Station. After midnight, the Zone Express will only drop off riders connecting from the last Lakeshore West GO Trains.
