Fortress of Louisbourg Classic

...because the Fortress is a tourist attraction...? This isn't a public transit service here. The only purpose of the buses is to shuttle people from the parking lots at the Visitor's Centre to the gates of the Fortress.

There is a small gravel parking lot beside the museum in the Fortress but it cannot handle the crowds during the peak summer season; during the off season it's sufficient enough to handle the lower volume of visitors.

I strongly suggest checking out the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site website for more details on the bus service and why it only operates during certain times of the year.

Sorry, I didn't know that! I don't really know much about other transit systems/attractions other than OC Transpo or STO, or TTC to a limited extent. Thanks for the info.

Fortress of Louisbourg took delivery of a New Flyer XD35, numbered 192, in late 2019. They did not open at all in 2020 and the bus finally entered service earlier this year.

Orion V # 192 was withdrawn earlier this year and # 191 was withdrawn a couple of years ago. Both # 191 and # 192 are expected to be auctioned off in the very near future,
