The Bracebridge Transit service is getting the nod from the province.

On Wednesday, Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca was in Bracebridge to officially launch the service.

Del Duca says he realizes how vital a service like this is to small communities like Bracebridge.

After cutting the big red ribbon, Del Duca jumped on the bus with Deputy Mayor Rick Maloney for a ride through the community.

During the ribbon-cutting Del Duca announced the province would be putting more dollars into projects like this in the near future.
