Cornwall council votes tonight on bus future
Sources say resolution involves keeping the buses running until a new council is elected in the fall
Cornwall town council will vote tonight on a resolution that could keep transit buses on the road at least until the fall.
Cornwall council voted in December to end its transit contract. That agreement was with Trius Transit, the city of Charlottetown and the town of Stratford.
Cornwall cited costs and the limited number of people using it as the reason.
Charlottetown and Stratford officials recently sent a proposal to Cornwall in the hopes the town would reverse its decision.
Town officials earlier refused to give the details of the new proposal until council had a chance to discuss it in private. It will now be discussed at tonight’s regular monthly town council meeting.
Sources say the proposal will involve keeping the buses running until a new council is elected in the fall.
Transit service is scheduled to end on June 27.
