Local transit:

Durham Region Transit (DRT) has a regionwide transit system, providing faster, easier access to municipalities within the region and key locations including UOIT, hospitals and shopping centres. DRT also provides easy access to GO bus and train service (with daily service to Toronto), Greyhound bus service, and VIA Rail passenger and commuter trains. Certain weekday GO trains can take you from Oshawa to downtown Toronto in only 45 minutes. From Union Station it's a short walk to the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, the Hummingbird Centre, the Eaton Centre as well as hundreds of shops, restaurants and clubs.

Driver's licence information: 

If you are a new resident in Ontario and have a valid driver's licence from another province, state or country, you can use it for up to 60 days after you move to Ontario. If you want to keep driving in Ontario, you must get an Ontario driver's licence. New Ontario residents have 30 days before they have to register their vehicles and get Ontario licence plates and vehicle permit.
