Recommended Posts

what cities in atlantic canada have transit.

I know Saint John, Moncton, Halifax, St.John's, and now Charlottetown. I assume Fredericton, and possibly Sydney, but where else?

North Sydney does. When I was there saw an Orion 1 pass, sorry no photo.

Also you missed Corner Brook Newfoundland.

What about Truno Nova Scotia ?

When I was in Truro I didn't see any transit buses, but of course that doesn't mean they don't run, just that I didn't see any.

Truro does not have transit.

Kings County does, they've got some D40LFs and Orion 1s.

I think that's about it though.. I can't think of any others

St. John's NL has a nice fleet, mostly New Looks and Classics, with a small handful of LFS' and Orion V's thrown in for good measure. I loved taking transit when I was in St. John's.

Correct, Kings Transit basically services the entire Annapolis Valley, from Wolfville to Annapolis Royal and beyond.

Not sure about Miramichi or Bathurst, but their websites don't have anything about public transit on them. New Glasgow definitely doesn't.

Mount Pearl NL is covered by St. John's Metrobus.

Should have at least given Halifax a chance!

Yes Halifax has a good Transit system and they have ferries that can be used with a bus transfer or transit fare.

Does this board even have any representatives from places like Sydney, Frederickton or Moncton?

I can give you all of the information you need on Halifax.

The details I have on St. John's Metrobus is... shaky at best.

Apparently Truro used to have a transit system until a few years ago, although I don't have any details.

I do know that Corner Brook is composed entirely of Cutaways, didn't get to photo one as the car broke down <_<

So did Bathurst, NB for a bit, IIRC they ran a couple of ex-CT Transit Classics leased from Dupont Trolley, after service was discontinued Dupont Trolley sold the buses to Charlottetown where they remain in service with Trius Tours.

No, a cutaway doesn't mean a Ford. It could be Ford chassis... GMC chassis...Workhorse chassis etc.

And, It's a bus. Plain and simple.
