London Transit's History

Public transit services commenced in London on May 24, 1875 when excited Londoners, celebrating the holiday proclaimed for Queen Victoria's birthday, clambered aboard horse drawn cars for the ride along Dundas Street between Ridout and Adelaide. Later that year, service commenced on Richmond Street between Dundas and Oxford streets.

Public transit began as a convenient alternative to walking and has developed into a vital service supporting sustainability for progressive, modern cities.
