The Province of Prince Edward Island is expanding its Rural Transit Pilot Program beginning Monday, December 20.
 
Midday runs will be added between Souris and Three Rivers along with more stops for riders including to the University of Prince Edward Island, Sherwood Business Centre and the Provincial Administrative Buildings.
 
A rural transit route from Tignish to Summerside will start in early 2022. The goal is to eventually create a fully-accessible, affordable and sustainable Island-wide public transportation network that will help reduce transportation emissions and support Prince Edward Island’s ambitious goals to be the first province with net-zero emissions by 2040. 
 
Anyone with ideas about the rural transit program, or with suggestions on ways the Province can create an Island-wide transit network to best meet the needs of Islanders, can email islandtransit@gov.pe.ca.
