Proposal to bring twice daily bus service to Charlotte County, New Brunswick. Service would connect St. Andrews, St. Stephen, Bayside, St. George, Pennfield, and Lepreau with Saint John. See the CBC article:

Bus service may return to Charlotte County
New service would link Charlotte County communities and Saint John

They don't seem to have a website, but SWNBTA is on facebook.

I just heard of this yesterday, and it sounds like a great idea. I hope they are able to get it off the ground.

If it does come to fruition, it would be awesome if they added Fredericton to the mix. When I moved to Fredericton from St. Stephen to begin university, Acadian had just closed their doors, which was a bummer. It'd be great to have an alternate way to get myself home once in a while.

This proposal has adopted the brand RuralLynx and has a website. They appear to be soliciting interest from potential bus contractors.

The New Brunswick government is helping kick-start the Rural Lynx bus system in Charlotte County, so it can provide public transit from St. Stephen to Saint John daily starting this fall.

The province will put $500,000 over two years into the project, which will function in a partnership with Maritime Bus, which does not already offer service to the area.
