THUNDER BAY – Kasper Mini-Bus has announced that the company is suspending bus service to Hearst until further notice. The decision is due to changes in scheduling made by Ontario Northland that make the operation of the Hearst run uneconomical at this time.
“We are committed to servicing the region of Hearst and beyond but due to this change in schedule we are unable to continue,” stated Kristian Kuznak, General Manager at Kasper Mini-Bus. “We will be working hard to re-evaluate our travel schedule and are working towards connecting to Hearst in the future”.
These changes are effective immediately. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes. Our goal is to provide a first-class service, including free water, free Wifi Internet on our buses, and we are doing that on all our routes.
“Our plans include expanding our routes, but we must do that in an economically viable manner,” added Kuznak. “We plan on continued efforts to do that, engaging with the Ontario Government to ensure that private business has their rightful place in the marketplace.”
Kasper Mini-Bus runs daily bus service to Sioux Lookout, Nipigon, Geraldton, and has eyes for more expansion in coming weeks. The bus service utilizes Mercedes Benz Sprinter buses with 11 or 16 seat capacity.
