MONCTON, NB – A lockout at Codiac Transpo has left customers scrambling to get around the city today.

Many riders first learned that the buses weren’t running when they arrived at the bus stop this morning, then they were forced to make last minute plans.

Others simply called into work and said they wouldnt’ be able to make it in.

Still others railed against the city for this predicament.

The city is offering free cab rides today for passengers caught off guard by the announcement.

If you’re stranded at a bus stop today, call the city for a free ride at 857-2008.

Air Cab and White Cab are offering riders a 10 percent discount if they show a valid bus pass.
