A new northern bus schedule being rolled out by ONTC is receiving praise from the MP of Timmins-James Bay. Charlie Angus says since rail service has been killed in the north the bus services have taken on a more important role. The transportation commission is looking to improve its bus services along the Highway 11 corridor.

The new changes being implemented next month won’t leave passengers with a two-and-half-hour wait in North Bay, those times will now be cut to only 25 minutes. Angus says he’s pleased there will be an express-like service going from Timmins to Toronto through Sudbury with the new changes.
