Membertou seeks to bus convention attendees – Cape Breton Post

MEMBERTOU, N.S. —
Membertou wants to be able to offer free bus transport to clients attending events there, including driving them to activities outside of the community and airport pickup.
The First Nation’s band council has filed an application with the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board seeking to amend its motor carrier licence. The initial application, signed by Jenna Sampson of the marketing division of Destination Membertou, was filed May 1.
In it, Samson notes Membertou hosts many conferences each year at its convention centre, as well as tournaments at its arena.
“Some groups and teams take part in events outside Membertou during their stay and our current licence restricts us from transporting them,” Sampson wrote. “This service would also give us a competitive advantage in our bids for events/conferences.”
