Pusey. This little railway had initially been built to carry iron ore from open pit mines at Irondale (Irondale, Ontario). Although the mines had closed, the railway had high hopes of extending to Bancroft (Bancroft, Ontario) and even higher hopes of reaching Ottawa. At Wilberforce where the railway skirted the southern shore of Pusey Lake, the Wilberforce Lumber Company put up a sawmill. In 1909 the Wilberforce mill was leased to James Lauder and Joseph Spears, of Toronto. The IB&O Railway was taken over by the Canadian Northern Railway in 1912. Messrs. Lauder and Spears along with Lucien B. Howland, (the former General Manager of the IB&O), looking for new business opportunities, acquired a sawmill on the new CNR (Canadian National Railway) line north of Parry Sound, Ontario. The three men eventually established the community of Lost Channel (Lost Channel, Parry Sound District, Ontario) in the Parry Sound District, and went bankrupt in the process.

Bancroft is served by a small airport, Bancroft Airport, with a 2,200 foot (670 m) crushed gravel runway, located immediately adjoining the town. The airport is operated by the Bancroft Flying Club and is freely available to the general public. Due to high terrain near both ends of the runway, pilots typically use a non-standard circuit, following the York River valley through the town for departing from runway 12 or landing on runway 30. The Central Ontario Railway arrived in November 1900 connecting Bancroft with Trenton. The railway went through the Musclow-Greenview road and extended behind Birds Creek through a back trail (which is now used for cyclists and fourwheeling) and continued through the town eventually going further away from the town at the 'Y' road division. The line was closed in 1975 and subsequently removed. The Bancroft, Irondale and Ottawa Railway connected Bancroft with Kinmount, Ontario. The line was purchased by the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway which became part of the Canadian National Railways in 1918. The line was abandoned in 1960. The old train station in Bancroft served as the Chamber of Commerce and Mineral Museum until it was condemned in 2008. The Chamber, Mineral Museum, and Art Gallery relocated to other sites in the town.
