Victoria Division was one of three operating divisions of Durham Region Transit. It primarily operated routes in Whitby and northern Durham Region.

The garage was located at 1559 Victoria Street East in Whitby, ON. It was owned by contractor Coach Canada, and also housed and maintained school buses and minibuses.

History

Trentway-Wagar Coach Lines won the operating contract for Whitby Transit in 1990, and continued to operate transit service in Whitby through the amalgamation into Durham Region Transit in 2006. Durham Region chose to maintain Coach Canada as an operating contractor, despite its other two divisions (East and West) being operated in-house. DRT referred to the Whitby operations as Centre Division until renaming it to Victoria Division in 2008.

The contract with Trentway-Wagar was renewed in November 2007, and was extended for an additional year in 2009 to April 22, 2011, and again in 2010 to October 11, 2011. A new tender was put out in February 2011, for a combined Whitby and northern communities (Brock, Scugog, and Uxbridge) contract. Five parties responded: Coach Canada, Diversified Transportation, Miller Transit, Tokmakjian (Can-ar Coach Service), and Veolia Transportation. Coach Canada retained the operating contract for an additional 5-year term.

In April 2016, the Region issued a new request for proposals for the operation of transit in Whitby and the northern communities. Six compliant proposals were received from Miller Transit, MV Transportation, PWTransit Canada, Ride Right, TOK Transit, and Trentway-Wagar. After a detailed evaluation, PWTransit had scored the highest. They were awarded the five-year contract with options for two one-year extensions. The contract took effect on January 2, 2017. With the change in contractors, DRT vehicles were relocated to PWTransit's new facility, known as Wentworth Garage.
