Kingston City Coach operated the transit system in the City of Kingston from March 1930 to June 30, 1962. Kingston City Coach was a subsidiary of Colonial Coach Lines/Provincial Transport.

Until March 4, 1930, a street car system existed in Kingston, the end came when the car barn burnt down destroying all but a couple of cars. Instead of replacing the street cars, several buses were brought in.

In 1962, Kingston City Coach wanted a new contract with the city but it was rejected. As a result the city created Kingston Transit and took over the transit system.
