An Ontario Bus company plans to offer routes in Manitoba that include stopping in Dauphin.

Kasper Transportation announced their immediate goal of setting up a route from Winnipeg to Thompson.

The route is expected to pass through Gimli, the Pas, and Dauphin.

The company says they’ll probably charge $125 per ticket each way. The cost of a Greyhound ticket to Thompson is $108.

The company already has services from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay.

They intend to add routes into Saskatchewan with service to Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, expecting they will add four to five new routes.
