Risør og Tvedestrand Bilruter is a Norwegian bus company that operates in the eastern parts of Aust-Agder on contract with the county administration of Aust-Agder. The company has 36 buses and 85 employees and is owned by the city councils of Risør, Tvedestrand (26.3% each), Vegårshei and Gjerstad (13.1% each), the municipalities where the bus company has most of its routes. Along with Setesdal Bilruter it bought Høvågruta in 2002.

It was in 2008 bought by Nettbuss Sør AS and incorporated into their fleet of companies. For a short while RTB operated an express busline between Kristiansand and Oslo called Miljøxpressen, but as this line was in direct competition with Nettbuss Sør AS's Sørlandsekspressen, it was closed down shortly after takeover.
