When Ontario Northland and the Ontario Government announced the "transformation" of ONTC services in April 2014, people expected that the uncertainty would end. Unfortunately, it appears that it will continue. As of May 22, Englehart and Matheson will lose their bus stations and New Liskeard, Kirkland Lake and Sudbury will see reduced hours at their stations.
When the Northlander was cancelled in September 2012, the silver lining was that all the towns served by the train would continue to have full bus service. While the buses will still be running, the stations will be closed.
Is the future of public transportation in the north secure? I don't know.
