Ferry between Halifax and Alderney Landing running again

The ferry between Halifax and Alderney Landing is back up and running but it's not clear if both ferries will operate during rush hour.

Problem was mechanical in nature; buses brought in to shuttle people across harbour

The ferry between Halifax and Alderney Landing in Dartmouth is back up and running.

Brendan Elliott, a spokesperson for Halifax Regional Municipality, is not sure whether the repairs will be finished in time to allow for regular 15-minute service during the afternoon rush hour.

Transit officials had been shuttling people across the harbour by bus.

HRM says the problem with the ferry was mechanical and not serious.
