Freedom Transit (formerly 'Washington City Transit') is the designation for the public transit agency providing bus services in the urbanized portion of central and northern Washington County, Pennsylvania. Local bus routes are designed to serve Washington, Pennsylvania, an edge city and a key location of both business parks and shopping amenities. The "Metro" bus route provides access from the Washington County suburbs to Downtown Pittsburgh. The Metro bus route makes stops in Washington, Houston and Canonsburg, serving central and northern Washington County, traveling ten times per weekday in each direction to Downtown Pittsburgh. The Metro service also stops at designated park and ride locations. More limited bus service is offered on Saturdays, with service to the South Hills "T" Transit Center.

In July 2015, Washington City Transit merged into the Washington County Transportation Authority.[1] The combined agency now operates bus service using the name Freedom Transit.
