Winnipeg to Grand Forks? Options besides by car?

Its inconceivable that there is no bus south from Winnipeg but there isn't. Guess there isn't the traffic to support it. I was wondering if there are any other options besides the insanely priced ($150!) shuttle bus from Winnipeg to Grand Forks. I need to get to Pembina, just on the south side of the border so I can pick up my Ebay packages. There must be others that do this. If we grouped together we could vastly lower fuel costs.

I've heard of none. I've always had to go pick up my Mum in Winnipeg when she traveled Canada by rail. Maybe try posting on Winnipeg's forum to see if you can carpool with someone else for paying part of their gas.

Actually most people need transportation to Minneapolis as that's the closet major airline hub to Winnipeg where you'll get great prices out of. You could hitchhike depending on the time of year but it sure would be awful in winter. Then again maybe you'd get a ride faster if they thought you were freezing to death! There is a bus for about $60 from Grand Forks to Minneapolis.

Maybe they haven't heard of Allegiant! About $65 taxes in from Grand Forks to Florida. Same as Spirit's Minneapolis to Florida fare. Only problem is Allegiant goes to Orlando, not the Miami airport so its not as convenient for connections. So you either take a bus from Grand Forks to Minneapolis or from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale. Something tells me the scenery might be a tad more interesting in Florida. :)

I know this post is a long time after the question was asked but finally we have a shuttle from Winnipeg to Grand Forks and return. The cost at time of posting is $60 + taxes one way on specific dates. You can get a better deal if you book a return date. It can be to Grand Forks airport or Columbia Mall or Target Mall. It is www.northernsparrow.com I was searching to try and get our son down for a visit this winter at a reasonable price and the flights from Winnipeg to our location down south are terrible.
