Northern Health Connections modified schedule during the month of August


Northern Health says the modified schedule is being implemented to allow routine maintenance on their buses, and goes on to say the change is designed to ensure the fewest impacts for patients, as the program sees a lower number of riders during the summer.

The call centre will remain open during the time frame of August 10 – 23; however, the program will not run regular routes.

The Northern Health Connections buses will complete their last runs for the two-week summer break up to August 9, at which they will run on a modified schedule until August 24.
