Winnipeg Transit Master Plan


Public engagement on the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan (WTMP) has now concluded. Thank you to all those who provided feedback on the draft plan.

After being endorsed at the Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works (SPC-IRPW) committee meeting held on April 16 and 20, and the Executive Policy Committee (EPC) meeting on April 21, the final Winnipeg Transit Master Plan will now be considered by Winnipeg City Council on Thursday, April 29, 2021.

The plan proposes an entirely new transit network to better respond to the needs of residents, with a system that is designed to be resilient, changing and adapting as the city grows. The proposed new network is based on a frequent transit network concept adapted to fit Winnipeg which would more than double the number of Winnipeg households within a short walk of frequent transit service once completed.

Rapid Transit infrastructure expansion is proposed as the core of the system. The proposed Rapid Transit network is comprised of six rapid transit corridors linked together to form three Rapid Transit lines that extend throughout the city. In turn, shorter routes within neighbourhoods would link up to the frequent and rapid transit networks to create an integrated network. The first priority for Rapid Transit is the downtown infrastructure, including an elevated transitway that would establish Union Station as the city’s flagship mobility hub.

The Winnipeg Transit Master Plan also proposes changes to Winnipeg Transit Plus to create a more seamless, integrated, and universally accessible network that better integrates conventional transit service with On-Request service and Winnipeg Transit Plus.
