Transit within Pickering began in May of 1967 with GO Transit operating fixed route service. Later, the Bay
Ridges Dial-A-Bus, as a demonstration by the provincial government, began operations on July 6, 1970. This,
combined with GO Transit's local fixed route service, reintroduced on February 28, 1972, held down service
in Pickering until January 27, 1973, when the Pickering Dial-A-Bus, operated by the municipality, took over
services within the city. Later, the modern Pickering Transit began offering its own fixed route service. Finally,
on September 4, 2001 Pickering Transit merged with tis neighbouring system to the east,
Ajax Transit, to
create the
Ajax-Pickering Transit Authority. APTA operated jointly until January 1, 2006, when it, along
with
Whitby Transit, Oshawa Transit, and Clarington Transit of Bowmanville, merged to become what is
now
Durham Region Transit. They continue to provide service to the City of Pickering to this date.
