Maritime Transport Ministers Working on Bus Solution Without Acadian Lines
Transportation ministers in New Brunswick and P-E-I say they are warm to the idea of opening up private sector competition to ensure the continuation of a regional transit service.
Acadian Coach Lines is expected to put the breaks on its service later this year.
Claude Williams, New Brunswick's transportation minister, says his province is conducting its own review of intercity bus regulations and he plans to discuss options with Nova Scotia and P-E-I.
Bus service is regulated in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia where Acadian Coach Lines has exclusivity on the routes it operates.
