Thompson Bus told the Thompson Citizen that two buses have been purchased and are due to be delivered to Thompson by mid-August. The company says it is finalizing a location for its headquarters and that the only possible barrier to providing limited service as of Sept. 1 as planned is obtaining all the necessary government licensing it will need prior to purchasing insurance.
