|Information||TransitLunenburg will be a scheduled, fixed-route public bus system within Lunenburg County. Initially there will be two Routes, A and B, linking the Towns of Bridgewater, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and Riverport as shown in the accompanying diagram. Bus A, on the shorter route, will provide internal service through the town of Bridgewater. Approximately 15,000 persons reside within one-half kilometre of this route.
Citizens for Public Transit (CPT), a group of Lunenburg County citizens, is recommending the system to the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL) and the three Town Councils of Bridgewater, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay and is urging the Government of Nova Scotia to assist financially.
Eventually other routes, spokes to this central hub, could serve destinations like New Germany, and Vogler's Cove. It is hoped that eventually the District system will inter-connect to a Provincial network that links many other local transit systems.
It is expected that the fixed route fixed schedule plans will complement door-to-door reservations systems already in place in Lunenburg County.
