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 to Royal Island Suburban Services, the island's regional transit system.
Newman Transit's fleet is comprised of buses, 84 trolleybuses and 103 streetcars.
Newman Transit has a fleet of 103 streetcars built by the Czechoslovak (later Czech) company ČKD Tatra from 1975 to 1997. These were purchased from a Slovakian tram operator in Ostrov pri Trenčíne in 1994. The city 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.
The system is operated with standard gauge tracks, with a one way current of 600 V. The numbering pattern of the cars changes depending on the model - the K2s and T3s were numbered in the order that they arrived in Newman, while the T6A5s and KT8D5s were numbered in the order that they were built.

Newman Transit has a fleet of 84 trolleybuses built by Czechoslovakian (later Czech) manufacturer Škoda Ostrov from 1987 to 2004. All units which are currently active in the fleet came directly from the manufacturer, but older units were purchased second hand from Ostrov pri Trenčíne, the same town from where the streetcar fleet came.
