May 3 launch set for The Link rural bus service in Selwyn Township

·1 min read

The new projected launch date for The Link rural bus service is May 3.

Due to delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic in launching the service, Selwyn Township and project partners submitted a formal request to the Ministry of Transportation to extend the granting period to March 2025, according to Ann Currier, the township’s climate change co-ordinator.

As a result, the service may be able to operate for four full years to ensure the service is sustainable.

The ministry is still deliberating the request, Currier said.

Updates will be provided throughout the winter months as officials continue preparing for the service’s launch, she said.
