Le Transport de Clare Society is marking its 14th year on the road with a new bus, which has been made possible through government funding and community support.

The society will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, April 18 at 11 a.m. at the Little Brook Fire Hall. The public is invited to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, which will also be used as a time for public recognition of funding from the federal Public Transit Capital Fund and Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations.

Since April 1996, Le Transport de Clare, a community-based transportation program, has been providing affordable and accessible transportation to persons with disabilities, seniors and the disadvantaged.

Serving the citizens of the Municipality de Clare, Le Transport de Clare Society logs close to 18,000 passenger trips each year.
