Rollsigns from Woodstock, ON
Public transportation in the area of Woodstock began with interurban electric railway
service provided by the Woodstock, Thames Valley and Ingersoll Electric Railway
Company. Rail service was abandoned in 1925, after which bus service took over.
The service was ultimately discontinued in 1945.
Recorded city transit service in Woodstock started mid century (1940's / 1950's) with Bluebird
Coach Lines. The City of Woodstock took over transit operations in the early 1970's and
continues to this date. In the late 1990s and early 2000s they were operating what some
referred to as "a working museum" of older vehicles such as 35 foot GMC New Looks, both
original to the system, and ones acquired second hand form several other systems such as
Brantford, Cambridge, Hamilton, Oakville, Orillia, Stratford, and Welland, Ontario, as well as some
from
Santa Monica, California. They've since retired all these and currently run a modern fleet.
