Navigo is Winnipeg Transit’s trip planner. It uses a simple step-by-step process to give you the information you need to make effective use of Winnipeg Transit. You tell Navigo where your trip starts, where you want to go, and the time you want to travel and Navigo will show you up to 5 complete trip options for you to choose from.
Step 1 – Enter Your Origin Location
Tell Navigo where your trip will start from. Once you’ve specified that location, press the Submit button.
A location is an address, an intersection, or a landmark.
An address requires a street number and street name.
In the space provided, start entering the street number and name information. If possible, suggestions that could finish the address you are entering will appear. If you see the address you were trying to enter, you may click on it to select it. In most cases, about 3 letters of a street name are enough to identify an address.
Examples: “414 Osborne Street”, or simply “414 osb”.
An intersection requires the specification of two intersecting streets.
In the space provided, start entering the two street names separated by “and”, “at”, @, &, +, /, or a comma. If possible, suggestions that could finish the intersection you are entering will appear. If you see the intersection you were trying to enter, you may click on it to select it.
Examples: “River and Osborne”, “river/osborne”, “riv@osb”.
A landmark is a well-known place identified by a name (eg. City Hall) or by an abbreviation (eg. RRC).
In the space provided, start entering the name of a landmark. If possible, suggestions that could finish the landmark you are entering will appear. If you see the landmark you were trying to enter, you may click on it to select it. In an attempt to account for possible differences in spelling and abbreviations, you may be asked to choose from a list of possible matches. If the landmark you have chosen has multiple locations, you will be asked to choose which location you would like to use.
Examples: “City Hall”, “u of m”, “River Heights Community Centre” or “rhcc”.
If you are logged in , pressing the My Locations option will display a list of all of your previously saved My Locations. You may click on one of the locations in your list to select it.
If you are logged in , the Save to My Locations option will be displayed when you have entered a new location. Press this option to save the new location in your My Locations.
If you have selected the “Always add origin and destination to My Locations” option in your User Settings, this will automatically be done for you.
Step 2 – Enter Your Destination Location
Tell Navigo where you want to go. This is entered exactly like the origin location.
Step 3 – Enter the Time You Want to Travel
To plan your trip, Navigo needs you to specify the time and date that you want to travel.
Once your time and date have been specified, press the Submit button and Navigo will plan your trip for you!
The time that you specify will relate to either the time that you want to leave from your origin or the time that you want to arrive at your destination.
Enter the time that you want to travel in the space provided. Many different formats are accepted; you can enter your time using a 12 or 24 hour clock, with or without a colon, and with or without minutes. Don’t forget to select a.m. or p.m. if you are using a 12 hour clock.
If the time you have entered refers to a departure time from your origin, select either the Depart Before or Depart After option.
If the time you have entered refers to an arrival time at your destination, select either the Arrive Before or Arrive After option.
The trip date will default to today’s date. If this is not the date on which you wish to travel, select another date on the calendar.
Leave Right Away
The “Leave right away” feature will set the time to the current time and select the Depart After option. This is a handy feature when planning an immediate trip.
Press the Show button in order to view or change some of the settings used by Navigo when planning your trip.
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.
Maximum Transfer Wait Time
The number of minutes that a person is prepared to wait in order to transfer buses to complete a trip is the “maximum transfer wait time”. This value is used by Navigo when planning trips.
You may adjust this setting to meet your individual needs.
Your walking speed and maximum walking time are used when you search for the stops or routes that are nearest to a location that you specify. They are also used by Navigo when planning trips you request.
An average pedestrian walking speed is approximately 4 km per hour. You may adjust this setting to meet your individual needs.
Maximum Walking Time
The maximum number of minutes that you are prepared to walk to or from a bus stop is the “maximum walking time”. You may adjust this value to meet your individual needs.
