News Elliot Lake council decides to go with three buses SHARE ON: Rosalind Russell, staff Thursday, Apr. 11th, 2019 Elliot Lake council has decided to go ahead with the purchase of three Blue Bird buses and will have another Arboc bus to round out the fleet in place by the end of the year. Moose files Elliot Lake city council has approved the purchase of not two, but three new Blue Bird buses and will also be utilizing the Arboc bus that is coming in. Councilor Chris Patrie urged his fellow council members to purchase three new Bluebird buses for a total cost of around $270,400 plus tax, rather than just the two that had been recommended. The funding is coming from reserves for the vehicles, which are also wheel-chair accessible. A fourth bus, the Arboc, will arrive later this year to round out the fleet.
