RuralLynx bus service in Southwest NB is on the road!

The first Rural Lynx/Maritime Bus departure left for Saint John from St. Stephen at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 25. SWNB Transit Authority Chair Stan Choptiany (third from right) poses with Maritime Bus staff before the first trip.

After years of hard work to make it a reality, the new bus service linking communities in Charlotte County to Saint John, New Brunswick, is up and running. RuralLynx, a partnership between the Southwest New Brunswick Transport Authority Inc., the Southwest New Brunswick Service Commission, and Maritime Bus, successfully began operations on September 25, 2017. It will run as a 2-year pilot project, and proponents hope it will ultimately turn into a permanent service.

The new service includes:

St. Stephen – St. Andrews – St. George – Upper Letang – Pennfield – Lepreau – Saint John
Service to Saint John Regional, St Josephs, UNB, McAllister Place, Courthouse, Main Terminal

Monday to Thursday – Grand Manan (Blacks Harbour) Connection

Friday & Sunday – Return Service to Bangor Maine from Charlotte County and Saint John
