A third bus company has stepped forward to help fill the void when Greyhound packs up shop.
Maple Bus Lines, whose main office is located in Selkirk, will be offering trips between Thompson and Winnipeg daily Sunday through Thursday.
The company has said that they are going to be hiring at least two local Greyhound employees as of October 31st.
Maple Bus Lines says that their buses are equipped with washrooms, and their Thompson to Winnipeg route will leave at 9:00pm, with arrival in Winnipeg scheduled for 5:45am.
There will also be a route in service between Thompson and Cross Lake come November, with plans to expand service to include The Pas in 2019.
