Hopefully by next year the transport will not be needed, but if it is, this is what we found,today. We were headed west from sept isle. Called from Baie Comeau last night. Called the guy in Pointe-aux-outardes, seemed most logistical. He owns the Petro Canada gas station in that town and has 2 rollback trucks. Nice guy named Thomas. We told him we would get into town at 9am. Trail goes right into town. He dropped us at a side road crossing at Columbier. But he is flexible. He could have picked us up in Baie Comeau or dropped us in Forestville. But he charges by the hour, so shorter is better. He charged us 135 plus tax. His rate is 100 per hour.

 All 3 of the guys on the poster are independent. Didn't check with the others. This guy seemed reasonable and was easy to work with.

Thanks Jeff.  I was wondering if anyone was going to try the shuttle service. Yes hopefully it will not be necessary next winter. I bet that closure was felt in many communities along that area of the TQ3.

Hope you and Sandy are having a great ride.

 Not sounding like it’s going to be open this year either. Lots of work still to be done for the new go around trail. Still do not have all the permission needed from land owners and lots of government red tape. This is no small feat to bypass that section. 

We shall see.
