SOUTH BAYMOUTH—The Owen Sound Transportation Company (OSTC) terminal in South Baymouth was packed last evening (Wednesday, September 26) as concerned Islanders came out to share their ideas with consultants hired by the OSTC to find answers to why ridership on the Chi-Cheemaun has plummeted 22 percent since 2005.
