More than Just…interviews
Sometimes things are more than they seem. Simple labels like “bus” or “transit” simply don’t describe the full story. More than just…is our Network’s way to celebrate the journey that community groups have taken to put wheels on the road. Every episode tells the backstory of how communities came together to meet the transportation needs of all Nova Scotians in their communities. Because sometimes a bus is more than just ….
