MONCTON, NB – A PEI based bus company believes it can pick up where Acadian Coach Lines intends to leave off later this year.

Mike Cassidy, owner of Trius Tours Limited, says he intends to put forth a proposal to operate an intercity bus service in the region.

” We would like to put together a business model where we would analyze all of the routes, look at the ridership of each route and how many times we are in these communities on a daily or weekly basis.”  says Cassidy.

Cassidy says if his company can’t provide bus service on smaller or less profitable routes than perhaps smaller shuttle companies can pick up the slack.

Acadian Coach Lines intends to end operations in the region on November 30th.
