More public transit routes for Prince County travellers

An extra round trip per day will be added on rural public transit routes between Tignish and Summerside and between Charlottetown and Summerside starting Thursday, December 29.

Going from two round trips per day to three will improve options for Prince County residents using public transit to get to and from work, school and essential services.

“We are aligning our schedule and routes based on demand and rider feedback. We will continue to make changes to our service over time to ensure that using our rural public transit service is easy and convenient for Islanders.”

- Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Cory Deagle
