Find a Timetable
A timetable can be displayed for a stop or for a route.
A Stop-based Timetable
A stop-based timetable will display the times that all buses are scheduled to depart a specified stop. To specify a stop, you can enter a stop number, a stop name, or an intersection. As you begin typing, you will see a prompt list of possible stops to assist your request. You can select your stop from the list if you see it. Then click Submit. The stop will be displayed on a map and you will be asked to specify the schedule type (today, weekday, Saturday, Sunday) for the timetable.
A Route Timetable
A route timetable will display the times that buses depart major stops along a specified route. To specify a route, you can enter a route number or a route name. As you begin typing, you will see a prompt list of possible routes that match. You can select your route from the list. Then click Submit. The route will then be displayed on a map and you will be asked to specify the schedule type (today, weekday, Saturday, Sunday) for the timetable.
Select a Schedule Type
The displayed timetable can be for today, weekday, Saturday, or Sunday service. When ‘today’ is selected, any known exceptions to the schedule (such as delays due to construction or a cancellation due to a stalled bus) will be reflected in the timetable information displayed. As well, the timetable will always use the schedule appropriate to the day on which you view it on Winnipeg Transit’s website. Specify the type of schedule, then click Submit.
Select a Route Direction
Depending on the route that you specify, you may also have to select the destination of route.
If you are requesting a Route Timetable, you need to specify a route direction. For example, if you want a timetable for Route 66 – Grant, you would then have to select one of:
- To Downtown, or
- To Unicity / Polo Park
After you have specified the Route Direction, click on Submit and your requested timetable will be displayed.
You can tailor how you want the timetable information displayed by setting the timetable options:
Winnipeg Transit’s low-floor buses enable easy access for individuals with limited mobility, those traveling in a wheelchair or scooter, and those traveling with a child stroller.
If you want “Easy Access” icons displayed in timetables or Navigo results to indicate transit service that is served by low-floor buses, then select the Show option for Easy Access. If you do not want the “Easy Access” icons to be displayed, then select Hide.
You can also specify with the click of a button whether you would like to list only service that is operated by “easy access” buses, or all service regardless of accessibility.
Notes are often included in timetables to indicate the direction or destination of the bus on a route.
Some examples of notes are:
- “To Downtown” or “D”,
- “Via Regent” or “R”, and
- “To Airport Via Flight Rd.” or “F”.
You can select “Full Notes” or “Note Codes” to display notes in timetables. If there are many columns in the timetables you use, you may want to use “Note Codes” to minimize column widths.
Times can be displayed using either the 12 hour or 24 hour clock.
- 12 hour: 9:35 pm
- 24 hour: 21:35
You may select your preference.
