Notes
The Kitchener Public Utilities Commission operated a transit service in Kitchener and Waterloo from 1927 to 1973. It operated electric street railway cars along King Street in both cities from 1927 to 1946.

Late in December of 1946 the streetcars were replaced with gasoline-powered buses and electric trolley buses. Even earlier the PUC had begun operating other transit routes with buses. These routes were called "cross-town lines." Trolley buses were in use until 1973 when Kitchener Transit, operated by the City of Kitchener, was created. Kitchener Public Utilities Commission, head office at 191 King St. W., Kitchener. Street railway depot and "car barn" at 1402 King St. E., Kitchener
