Getting There & Away
From the bus station, one overnight Greyhound bus runs to/from Winnipeg ($108, nine hours). Other Hwy 6 destinations use the bus station near the tourist information center within Heritage North Museum.
Thompson is the end of paved roads; the lethargic VIA Rail train runs north to Churchill (5pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 16 hours) and south to Winnipeg (2pm Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, 45 hours) via the Pas (the Wednesday train terminates at the Pas). The train station, in an industrial area 1km from town, is not a safe spot to leave your vehicle. McReedy Campground offers vehicle storage and shuttles to the train (per night/week $8/40).
