De­laney un­veils new Choose Corn­wall bus

Seaway News - - NEWS -

Driv­ers in Ottawa and on High­ways 417 and 138 will soon have a colour­ful ad­di­tion on the road with the un­veil­ing to­day of the new “ Choose Corn­wall” com­muter bus, op­er­ated by De­laney Bus Lines Ltd.

“ We think the new graph­ics will re­ally grab peo­ple’s at­ten­tion and raise the pro­file of not only our ser­vice, but of the city of Corn­wall it­self,” said Mike De­laney, owner of De­laney Bus Lines. The bus has been com­pletely ‘ wrapped’ in full colour graph­ics that fea­ture a large bal­loon fea­tur­ing the City of Corn­wall logo. The Par­lia­ment Build­ings in Ottawa are also fea­tured.

“ Our prox­im­ity to Ottawa is very im­por- tant to the con­tin­ued growth of Corn­wall’s econ­omy,” said Mayor Bob Kil­ger. “ The new bus puts our brand in front of thou­sands of driv­ers ev­ery day, and I com­mend Mike De­laney and his team for part­ner­ing with us to pro­mote Corn­wall.”

“ The full-sized coach will of­fer a much more comfortable ride and will al­low us to carry more pas­sen­gers,” said Mike De­laney, owner of De­laney Bus Lines. “ The new lower fares will make this eco­nom­i­cal ser­vice even more af­ford­able for peo­ple who live in Corn­wall and work in Ottawa.”

In June, De­laney re­duced the fares on their Corn­wall-Ottawa com­muter bus serv- ice. The price of a monthly pass dropped by 25 per­cent to $ 300. As noted above, the larger bus of­fers more com­fort, with larger seats, and a bet­ter ride. As the price of park­ing in down­town Ottawa is around $ 200 per month, and with fuel prices hov­er­ing over 90 cents/ litre, the com­bi­na­tion of price and fea­tures should make the Corn­wall-Ottawa com­muter bus ser­vice very at­trac­tive to com­muters.

“ Our cus­tomers can re­lax dur­ing their com­mute, and by­pass the has­sle of rush hour traf­fic,” said Mike De­laney. “ If enough com­muters can be at­tracted to aban­don their cars for the bus, im­prove­ments to the en­vi­ron­ment and high­way safety will also re­sult.”

The Corn­wall-Ottawa com­muter bus ser­vice pro­motes www. ChooseCorn­wall. ca, a web­site de­vel­oped by Corn­wall Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment to help new res­i­dents and busi­nesses in­vest in Corn­wall. The web­site fea­tures in­for­ma­tion on hous­ing prices, em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­cludes tes­ti­mo­ni­als from sev­eral lo­cal com­mu­nity leaders.

De­tails, such as the Corn­wall-Ottawa com­muter bus ser­vice timetable and route in­for­ma­tion, are avail­able at www. de­laney. ca.
