THUNDER BAY – BUSINESS – Bus transportation in Northwestern Ontario is a market in transition. Kasper Transportation based in Thunder Bay is a company in full force growth mode. Working to meet the ever-shifting market, the company has worked to expand from existing routes and grow to meet the needs of the marketplace.
President Kasper Wabinski says, “We are expanding our routes. We started with our daily service from Thunder Bay to Sioux Lookout. We expanded to Long Lac, and are now adding Sioux Lookout to Winnipeg. We have added new buses, and are looking at moving into Fort Frances in the last quarter of 2017.”
“Our growth has stretched our company’s resources at times,” comments Wabinski.
“We are fully licenced, fully insured, and fully registered with MTO. We work hard to maintain our fleet and our services to exceed customer expectations,” says Wabinski in an interview with NetNewsLedger.
The company has customized their fleet to include extra safety equipment, including moose bumpers and in-bus cameras to enhance safety.
“Our advantage is simple, we offer our customers safe, relaxing luxury travel onboard all our vehicles”.
“We are the largest privately-owned charter and scheduled bus transportation company in Northwestern Ontario, and we are looking to continued growth and success,” concluded Wabinski.
The bus transportation market is in transition. Greyhound Canada is, across Canada, reducing many routes. Caribou Coach in Thunder Bay has dropped their last scheduled passenger run and will only offer charter service in the future.
