Port Hope Transit is the local bus service provider in the Municipality of Port Hope, Ontario, which is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario about 109 kilometres (68 mi) east of Toronto. With a population of only 16,390 people in 2006, this is one of the few smaller communities in the province with a fully funded public transit system.

Two regular routes serve the community with an additional inter-municipal shuttle service to Northumberland Mall and Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg, which connects with the Cobourg Transit system.[2] Hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm and on Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, with no service on Sundays or holidays. The cash fare is $2.00 for adults and $1.50 for seniors or children younger than 18, with preschoolers riding for free. A 30-day pass costs $50 for adults and $30 for students and seniors.[3]

Transfers to and from Cobourg Transit can be made for $1.00.
