HALIFAX - The federal government is contributing $3.1 million to a new bus line run by Metro Transit in Nova Scotia's Tantallon area.
The line will provide direct wheelchair- and bike-accessible public transit to free parking lots along 100-series highways within the Halifax Regional Municipality.
The buses will have air conditioning and individual reclining seats, and each can carry one wheelchair with a lift system.
One-way fares are $3.25 for adults and $2.50 for seniors and children.
The municipality is picking up $2.5 million of the cost of the project, with the province kicking in $96,000.
The MetroX regional express transit service will operate 10 buses along Highway 103 from the park-and-ride lot at Hubley Centre to downtown Halifax.
