Passenger Rail Service Saved In Province

Some good news for those who didn't want to see passenger rail service disappear entirely from New Brunswick altogether. 

It has been saved thanks, in part, to Via Rail giving over $10 million to Canadian National Railway to maintain over 70 kilometres of track between Bathurst and Miramichi. 

The passenger rail service goes between Halifax and Montreal through the northern part of the province. 

Transport Minister Lisa Raitt would like to see something done to increase ridership.
