http://www.maheux-cree.com/ Starting this month, Maheux of Abitibi is starting a new service, a first in the region. They'll be operating a bus service to Chisasibi, Eeyou-Istchee, via Amos, Matagami and the entire length of the James Bay Road. It'll run two round trips a week, heading south on Monday and Thursday, and heading north on Sunday and Wednesday. Appears judging by the publicity material that they plan to use one of their newer current-generation Prevost H3-45s with Volvo powertrains. So, any of you guys want to take a shot of going for an actual adventure on one of the most isolated land-based public transport routes in Canada, here's your chance. I'm already begging my family to take me. I always wanted to go up this road, as I've seen various trip reports of people from the south who went up there in trucks, cars and on motorcycles. I wonder if this is successcul, whether Eeyou will start planning local public transit services like Nunavik has?
