Transit History of St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador

Notes

St. John's and Kelligrews (19.3 mi./30.9 km). St. John's and Kelligrews [Conception Bay South] (19.3 mi./30.9 km).

Public transportation service in the suburban/rural region around St. John's was provided for many years by a variety of bus and jitney operators. Allison Voith's 1973 article (see References below) enumerated at least 7 bus and 15 jitney operators connecting to St. John's (and more than a dozen similar operations elsewhere in Newfoundland). The division between suburban and rural is difficult to discern but at least two operations, Eastern Bus Lines (Pouch Cove - St. John's) and Lee's Bus Service (Petty Harbour - St. John's), seemed suburban in character.
