The Régie intermunicipale de transport Gaspésie – Îles-de-la-Madeleine is pleased to announce the establishment of a shuttle bus for a 3rd year. This shuttle linking the Campbellton train station and the municipalities located on the south shore of the peninsula – between Nouvelle and Gaspé – for the holiday season (December 20, 2019 to January 5, 2020). This additional service will enable people who travel on board the Ocean train to or from Montreal to make connections all the way to Gaspé.
« The success of the last available shuttles encourages us to continue this service for the holiday season once again this year. Synchronized with the train schedule, these shuttles offer additional transportation to the citizens in the region “said Daniel Côté, Mayor of Gaspé and President of the REGIM.
