Acadien Bus Service Halted

There will be no intercity bus service until further notice with Acadien bus lines locking out its drivers in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island this morning.

The bus terminal on Chesley Drive is in the dark.

Company vice-president Marc-Andre Varin says parcel delivery will be stopping as well if no buses are running.

 Acadien has routes within New Brunswick and two daily runs to and from P-E-I.
Glen Carr of the Amalgamated Transit Union says the bus drivers, mechanics and customer service reps voted 88 per cent against the company's last offer earlier this week and were prepared to stage strike action.
