Gaspe: VIA’s Christmas Connection

Recommended Posts

Its been 5 years since VIAs Claleur was discontinued....but this Christmas VIA has teamed up with REGIM Régie intermunicipale de transport Gaspésie Îles-de-la-Madeleine to provide a connecting bus service between stops on the Gaspe Peninsula and the Ocean at Campbellton, New Brunswick.

Certainly not a train but a good first step with thru tickets and fares....and it brings back memories of the long trains and extra sections of the Chaleur between Montreal and the Gaspe during the Holidays. Heres the Chaleur being split from the Ocean at Matapedia, Quebec in 2009.

Gaspe certainly hasn’t been isolated since the Chaleur stopped running as the Orleans Express bus between Montreal-Quebec & Gaspe serves both the south shore (parallel to the old VIA route) as well as the north shore and there are airports at Gaspe, Bonaventure and Mont-Joli. Hopefully the dedicated connection to the train will capture some of VIA’s old passengers.
