Public transportation in Stratford began with Stratford Coach Lines Ltd. in March of 1930. Their operations
were relatively short lived, as on November 6, 1933, the Cities Bus Service Company Ltd. took over operations.
This company continued to provide service until 1950, when the system once again changed hands. Stratford
Coach Lines Ltd., a private operator that was a subsidiary of Bluebird Coach Lines Ltd., also only provided
service for a short time, as in 1952, the current Stratford Transit took over the service. Operated by the City of
Stratford Public Utilities Commission (PUC), the city continues to provide service to this date.
