Ontario Northland Bus coming to TBay

Province Extends Intercommunity Bus Service from Ottawa to Thunder Bay

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO - February 12, 2020  (LSN)  The Ontario government is providing more travel options for passengers in the northwest with the launch of a new bus route between White River and Thunder Bay, offering riders easier, more convenient connections and direct stops at hospitals, post-secondary schools and other community hubs.

Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, was at Lakehead University today to make the announcement.

The new route, offered by the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (ONTC), will provide six-day-per-week return service to Thunder Bay. It will also fill an existing service gap by becoming the only seamless, scheduled passenger bus travel option from Thunder Bay to Ottawa.

"Our government understands just how important reliable, affordable transportation is to the people of Northern Ontario and we are proud to expand ONTC service into the northwest," said Minister Rickford. "This new bus route to Thunder Bay will keep more communities connected and will better serve the northwestern region."

"Our government is delivering on our commitment to build a better transportation network in Northern Ontario that connects people to jobs and critical services," said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. "Launching a new bus route between White River and Thunder Bay will make it easier for people to get where they need to go, while supporting a strong economy."

"We are providing essential connections for passengers, helping to better connect the north with the rest of the province. Our friendly drivers, free Wifi, on-board washrooms and new coaches are just a few reasons passengers will be amazed at their experience on an Ontario Northland motor coach," said Corina Moore, ONTC President and Chief Executive Officer. "Expanding our services into the northwest to Thunder Bay and providing a seamless link between the communities along Highway 17 from Ottawa is critical to northerners since the departure of Greyhound."

The new schedule for service to Thunder Bay will begin in April 2020.

Creating more transportation options in Northern Ontario is part of the government's plan to build Ontario together. Ontario's plan is creating more good-paying jobs and opportunities in the north and attracting new investment so northern communities can grow and thrive.
