Inter-City Bus Service Not Getting Enough Passengers On Some Routes

Lots of folks rely on the inter-city bus service to visit family, get to school, and find work--but according to Transportation Minister Claude Williams the pilot project connecting Bathurst, Campbellton, Miramichi and Moncton has less than half the passengers and packages it needs to be sustainable.

MLA Bill Fraser says there needs to be jobs in order for that to change.

As it currently stands, Maritime Bus is looking for business and community partnerships to support the route until it starts turning a profit.
