AMHERST – Cumberland County Transportation Services is receiving $112,454 under the province’s Community Transportation Assistance Program.

The announcement was made by Municipal Affairs Minister Mark Furey on Tuesday. The minister announced $1 million in new funding for public and community-based transit and $500,000 in additional funding for the community assistance program.

"We want Nova Scotians to be able to choose where they live and work, so it is important that they have access to public transportation to get them where they need to go," said Furey. "This new funding will help municipalities and community organizations provide and maintain reliable and affordable transit service."

The $1 million in new funding for public and community-based transit will go to Cape Breton Transit, serving Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Kings Transit Authority, serving Hants, Kings, Annapolis and Digby Counties.

A portion of funds has also been allocated for anticipated new transit service providers and the Accessible Transportation Assistance Program.

The $500,000 additional funding for the Community Transportation Assistance Program will be distributed to the 14 community-based transit organizations providing door-to-door service in rural Nova Scotia.

The total program budget in 2014-15 is $1.15 million.
