Winnipeg Transit

Southwest Transitway


October 2019 - Winnipeg Transit is proposing improved bus routes in southwest Winnipeg to coincide with the opening of the Southwest Transitway (Stage 2) in April 2020, subject to Council approval. Thank you to those who provided feedback in April 2019. A public engagement summary is now available. Please visit the Routes tab to learn more.

The Southwest Transitway is a dedicated high-speed roadway for buses, physically separated from the regular street system linking Downtown to the southwest part of the city. Buses operate at speeds up to 80 km/h, free of any other traffic, providing very fast, reliable service.

Stage 1 of the Southwest Transitway, completed in 2012, currently runs from Queen Elizabeth Way & Stradbrook Avenue to Pembina Highway and Jubilee Avenue. Once Stage 2 is completed, anticipated in spring 2020, the Southwest Transitway will operate from Downtown to the neighbourhoods of southwest Winnipeg, including the University of Manitoba.
