New border bus coming

There’ll be a new bus to the border in the fall.

The Gallant Government is providing $500,000 over two years to help the Rural Lynx bus system get going in Charlotte County. The Southwest New Brunswick Transit Authority will operate the bus which will have two round trips a day between Saint John and St. Stephen with stops in Saint Andrews, St. George and Pennfield.

The Transit authority has been pushing for a new bus service since Acadian Lines dropped the route in 2011. The bus will also provide courier services in the communities.
