Kasper Transportation Suspending All Operations May 2nd, 2020
Kasper Transportation notified the Ministry of Transportation that the company will be suspending operations of all routes effective Saturday, May 2, 2020. The decrease in revenue caused by the COVID-19 pandemic makes it financially irresponsible to continue operations at this time.
Kasper Transportation provides intercommunity land-based transportation services to the northern 50% of the landmass of Ontario and plays a vital role in providing passenger, charter, and freight services. We are also suspending our twice-daily Owen Sound to Guelph service.
Suspending our service will impact a significant portion of our population that do not have access to private vehicle transportation and must travel for essential medical appointments and for employment. Kasper Transportation freight services transport medical samples, municipal water testing samples, drug prescriptions, and freight for mines and hydro development projects.
We hope to serve you again in the near future, stay safe, and stay healthy.
We are saddened to learn about the senseless violence in Nova Scotia, which claimed the lives of multiple people, including one member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Cst. Heidi Stevenson, a 23-year veteran of the Force. Our hearts go out to the people who have lost loved ones, and to the RCMP family mourning a fallen officer. We want to thank them, and all first responders, for their unwavering dedication, professionalism, and service, and for always being there for us.
