Antigonish Community Transit Bad Weather Policy

Our Bad Weather Policy states that if the school buses are cancelled, the COUNTY buses are not running. We still have service in the town. If the service in town will be cancelled, it will be on 101.5 The Hawk, our Facebook page and our Twitter Feed.

The Antigonish Community Transit Society is almost finished its Pilot Project! Ridership and Routes are continually growing but we still need your support! Hop on the bus, Get in the ACT and support this community initiative to ensure that it is around after March 31st, 2015! Make sure to give your Councillor a call to ensure they vote to keep this service running!
