South Shore Transit Network Pilot Project
The South Shore Transit Network Pilot Project
Well it’s a go for the residents of the South Shore – bus service from Lunenburg County to Halifax three times a day. Exciting times and Nova Scotia Community Transportation Network (NSCTN) is taking the lead. NSCTN is partnering with Maritime Bus, Communities Culture and Heritage and local community transportation providers to deliver a transit service between Bridgewater and Halifax.
One of the directives of Nova Scotia Community Transportation Network (NSCTN) is to support new collaborations with multisector transportation providers. The South Shore Transit Pilot is a collaborative project worth championing. NSCTN sees this project as a potential template for future collaborations in other Nova Scotian communities.
All the Partners
The towns of Bridgewater, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay, the Municipality of the Districts of Chester, Lunenburg, Citizens for Public Transit and the local non-profit transit providers: Community Wheels, Seniors Wheels, Queen’s and Bridgewater Transit and the VON, all support NSCTN partnering with Maritime Bus to provide a sustainable, affordable and accessible transit network for the south shore.
Details of the Service
Maritime Bus will provide service three times (3 x) daily round-trip service from Lunenburg County to Halifax, including (3 x) daily local bus connecting the towns of Bridgewater, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. This local bus service will ultimately support the work of the local community transportation providers that are part of this collective.
“Our Bridgewater – Lunenburg – Mahone Bay – Chester, Lunenburg County, addition to our Maritime Bus Network is a good example of our Transportation Philosophy where “Passion and a belief we must be connected will drive the future of our daily scheduled Intercity Bus Company in the Maritimes”. Mike Cassidy, President Maritime Bus
