Ontario government to provide $3.6 million for Little Bear Express service improvements

The Ontario government recently announced it will provide the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission $3.6 million to improve freight- and passenger-rail service between Cochrane and Moosonee.

The commission will use proceeds to begin hauling freight separately twice a week and provide exclusive passenger service five times a week for Little Bear Express customers.

In addition, Polar Bear Express and Little Bear Express passenger trains will be consolidated during the summer and service will be increased to six days a week.
