Southwest Rapid Transitway Stage 2 public art will celebrate civic, Indigenous and Métis history

Seven locations along the transitway will host Canadian artwork

Tuesday, January 31, 2017
Winnipeg, MB. – As part of its design, the Southwest Rapid Transitway Stage 2 will integrate public artwork celebrating civic, Indigenous and Métis history as well as the natural history and ecology of the Fort Garry region, the north-south trails, and the fur trade.

Seven locations along the Southwest Rapid Transitway will host artwork including: Parker, McGillivray, Clarence, Chevrier, Plaza, Chancellor, and Markham sections of the development.

Specific themes have been developed to celebrate the heritage and unique character of each region:

  1. Rooster Town Métis community,
  2. History of public transportation in Winnipeg
  3. Industrial and neighbourhood development in Fort Garry
  4. Natural history of the Red River region
  5. Japanese- Canadian internment in Manitoba
  6. North-South trails
  7. Métis resistance and land rights

A national call to artists was issued today by the Winnipeg Arts Council, who manages the Public Art Policy and Program on behalf of the City of Winnipeg. The call is open to professional artists residing in Canada.

Selected artists will work with a public art committee, made up of representatives from the Winnipeg Arts Council, Plenary Roads Winnipeg, and the City of Winnipeg. They will also work with the project team to integrate their artwork with the transitway.

Deadline for submission is Friday, March 31, 2017.

Winnipeg Transit’s Open Data Web Service

Winnipeg Transit has outfitted its fleet with iBUS technology that includes on-board GPS tracking, automated schedule adherence monitoring, “next stop” displays/announcements, route destination announcements for waiting passengers when a bus pulls up to a bus stop, and a security camera system. The bus radio communication system automatically relays data about any schedule deviations recorded by the buses to a central database. This continuously updated database reflects the current status of all transit service and is used to broadcast “real-time” transit information to passengers through the following channels:

Website (includes Navigo trip planner, route and stop timetables, and detailed information about stops, routes, fares, etc.)
BUSguide Mobile website for Internet-enabled mobile devices
TeleBUS Telephone interactive voice response system that reports upcoming bus departures for a specified stop
BUStxt SMS text messaging application that reports upcoming bus departures, finds the nearest stops, and more
BUSwatch Electronic displays at major stops that show upcoming bus departures from the stop
BUSgadget A downloadable application from that counts down a stop’s bus departures on a desktop or mobile device
Twitter Feeds “Transitalerts” and “Winnipeg Transit” feeds about service status, detours, and upcoming service changes

Winnipeg Transit’s data is now publicly available through an Open Data Web Service that allows developers to create third-party apps for any mobile (iPhones and Android devices) or desktop platform. Programmers can now create new applications for passengers that supplement the ones already developed by Winnipeg Transit.
