Welcome to Maple Bus Lines. This page is intended for us to post updates on the COVID-19 pandemic and what the current status of our operations are. If you require any further info or have any questions regarding the information on this page please feel free to contact us at (204) 289-4451.
MARCH 24,2020 SERVICE BULLETIN ***NEW***
Just to clear up any confusion our Thompson To Winnipeg and Winnipeg To Thompson Routes are still fully operational and we are still travelling every night from Sunday To Friday.
We are employing a new social distancing on our coaches where passengers will be seated at every second row of seats to space everyone out. This is not optional and has to be done to minimize any risks to our passengers.
We are still following strict sanitizing guidelines and will continue to do so every time a coach is used.
Any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our depot at 204-289-4451 extension # 1.
Once again we thank all our loyal customers and will be glad to service you in the future.

MARCH 16,2020 - UPDATE FOR CLEANING PROCEDURES
The safety of our guests, staff, and our fleet is top priority and we are committed to providing a safe travel and work environment for our Guests and Staff.
We are in communication with experts and the government for the most up-to-date information and we will continue to monitor the situation closely and update this page as needed.
In addition to the standard bus cleaning that has always been part of our daily maintenance schedule, we have introduced additional measures to decrease the chances of cross contamination.
We already disinfect and sanitize our vehicles using industry-approved products and we have now also introduced hospital-grade disinfection wipes and sprays to our cleaning processes. These new products are used to clean and sanitize the lavatories, tray tables, seats & armrests, headrests, seatbelt buckles, overhead bins and lavatory fixtures and handles.
Please check back on this page often to see if any new updates have been added.
