WOODSTOCK, Ont. — Contrans Income Fund today announced it has completed a sale to Stock Transportation Ltd. of all of its interests in Northstar Passenger Services and Walsh Transportation for approximately $54 million plus about $2 million in liabilities.
As a result of this transaction, Contrans has sold all of the assets associated with its busing operations.
“The disposition of the busing business of Contrans will be a positive development for Contrans in that it will allow Contrans to focus exclusively on its core freight transportation business and will augment the capital available to pursue acquisition opportunities,” said Stan Dunford, Chief Executive Officer of Contrans.
