Newman Transit provides transit service to the city of Newman, Royal Island, the island's second largest city. It operates both buses and streetcars, and is funded by both the federal and municipal governments. Newman Transit makes numerous connections toLinkwood Transit, the island's regional transit system.


Newman Transit's fleet is comprised of buses and 103 streetcars.



Newman Transit has a fleet of 103 streetcars built by the Czech company ČKD Tatra from 1975 to 1997. These were purchased from a Slovakian tram operator in 1996, who was finding streetcar services unprofitable. All are equipped with the BUSE information system, with the exception of Tatra T3 2041-2042 and KT8D5 2114 and a majority have been equipped with air conditioning. A majority of the cars run in pairs of two.
