Transit Cape Breton is a public transport agency operating buses in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM), in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Owned by the CBRM, Transit Cape Breton's operations area is the urban core in the eastern part of the municipality, namely Industrial Cape Breton, which includes the communities of Sydney, Glace Bay, North Sydney, Sydney Mines, Reserve Mines, and New Waterford.

Transit Cape Breton also operates "Handi-Trans" for passengers whose disabilities restrict them from using regular bus service. As of October 2009, Transit Cape Breton has also put 8 wheelchair-accessible buses into service which travel the regular routes. Their main feature is a no-stairway entry system with wider aisles.

Transit Cape Breton does not operate on Sundays or public holidays.
