Rae Edzo Friendship Express (? - present?)
A “NWT Bus Services” website (2011) lists the above bus line. Behchokò, named Rae-Edzo prior to 2005, is comprised of two population centres, Rae and Edzo, located 19 km apart by road (6 km by air or winter ice road) with a population of approximately 2,000 (Wikipedia). Neither REFE nor the municipality have a website so it's hard to determine if REFE operates scheduled service or anything like a transit frequency.
