Acadian Bus Lines is moving out of its downtown Fredericton terminal next week.
Buses will arrive and depart from a new site on Hubbard Road in the Vanier Industrial Park, effective Oct. 1, said Manon Piché, spokeswoman for Groupe Orléans Express, Acadian's parent company.
The new location is only temporary, she said.
"We have not finalized a permanent home for our Fredericton terminal, and unfortunately we have to move. And we were lucky enough to find a temporary home, which is very acceptable for the moment," said Piché.
The company has to move from its current location at the corner of King and Regent streets because its lease expires on Oct. 15 and the owners want to build a parking garage on the site.
Acadian has received re-zoning approval for a new site on Woodside Lane, off of Hanwell Road, but the company is still assessing the cost of moving there, said Piché.
Some passengers, including students, have expressed concerns about the terminal moving outside the downtown core. A downtown location is more convenient, they say.
Company officials have said they would prefer to stay downtown, but nothing suitable is available.
Acadian will run a free shuttle van from the current downtown terminal to Hubbard Road for the first couple of weeks after the change, said Piché.
