Midland Penetanguishene Transit, formerly Midland Transit Service, is a small municipal transit system in the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada.[1] Two routes operate from the hub at King and Elizabeth Streets every half-hour on weekdays and every hour on Saturday, with no service on Sundays and holidays.[2] Midland also offers a wheelchair accessible van service, operated by Community Link North Simcoe, that offers door to door service.[3] The bus depot and public works maintenance facility is located at 731 Ontario Street, but the system is administered from the town offices at 575 Dominion Avenue.

On February 1st 2016, a new route was launched into Penetanguishene, Ontario.[1] The Penetanguishene route connects Penetanguishene to Midland at transfer stops at the old Mountainview mall and at Georgian Bay General Hospital, and is operated by Midland Transit, under contract, for Penetanguishene Transit.


Buses used by Midland Transit are 2003 Ford E-450 with a Corbeil Heritage body.

Retrieved 2021-09-27. "'For those who don’t know,' said Levy, 'the new Penetanguishene bus is so much more accessible than the last one. I see, daily, people boarding in wheelchairs and easily on walkers; the step goes down and then comes back up again. And of course, the LINX bus actually kneels as the European buses do. So the entire county, including Penetanguishene, has become much more accessible.'"
