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.
