Winnipeg Transit

Stations

Back

Although each rapid transit corridor will have unique stations designed to fit the needs of the corridor and the surrounding neighbourhoods, all stations will have some similar key features:

  • Weather protection for passengers (large heated shelters and extended canopies over the platform like those at Harkness, Fort Rouge, and Jubilee Stations).
  • Extensive Passenger Information (prominent station signage, wayfinding signage, route/schedule/fare information, real-time BUSwatch electronic signs).
  • Safety Measures (transparent materials so waiting passengers can see and be seen, high lighting levels, closed circuit TV, warning strips at platform edges, and designated pedestrian crossings,).
  • Universal Design features to provide access for persons with disabilities.
  • Active Transportation Facilities (convenient pedestrian/cycling access paths to stations, bicycle racks, and lockers).
  • Conveniences and Aesthetics (high platforms to provide “near-level boarding”, benches, waste/recycling receptacles, landscaping, attractive design).

Stage 1 of the Southwest Transitway has four stations:

  • Jubilee Station (in the Fort Rouge Yards near the Pembina Jubilee overpass),
  • Fort Rouge Station (in the Fort Rouge Yards near Morley Ave),
  • Osborne Station (on a dedicated transit bridge over Osborne Street near Osborne Junction),
  • Harkness Station (at Harkness & Stradbrook).
