Government is committed to supporting transportation options for Nova Scotians. The province is investing $707,674 to help 11 organizations purchase accessible vehicles to make health care, food, employment and education easier for people to access.
Two grants, totaling $117,685, support the launch of the Eskasoni Transit Service - the first transit service operated by a Mi'kmaw community in Nova Scotia. The funding helps with the purchase of two vehicles: a nine-passenger van offering door-to-door service in the community and a 20-passenger bus providing fixed-route service between Eskasoni and Sydney.
The investment comes from the Accessible Transportation Assistance Program, designed to help organizations buy or modify accessible buses or vans: beta.novascotia.ca/apply-funding-operating-costs-community-based-transportation-service-community.... ...
