Sarnia Transit operates and maintains a fleet of 25 buses on the conventional transit system, which is responsible for providing public transportation within the transit service area of the City of Sarnia and Village of Point Edward.  Service operates seven days a week and many of the twelve bus routes meet on Cristina Street at Lochiel near City Hall.  Another major transfer point is at the London Rd. Plaza Loblaws on London and Murphy Roads.



791 was a 1979 GM T6H-5307N.  This bus was rarely used both because of its size and its age, but in May 2008 it was still on Sarnia’s active bus roster, though it has since been retired from service. (Photo by Orion 4, courtesy of Orion 4’s Transbus Gallery)



812 was a 1981 Orion 01.501, shown at the transfer point in downtown Sarnia.  This bus was still painted in the old livery at the time, but by December 2009 it had been withdrawn from service.
