On-Time Performance

Every Winnipeg Transit bus is equipped with an on-board computer and GPS that logs whether or not it is on time as it leaves a bus stop. For example, if a bus is supposed to leave a stop at 08:30:00 and it actually leaves at 08:35:27, this is logged by the computer. The data downloaded from the buses every day will show that this bus was 5 minutes and 27 seconds late leaving that bus stop.

This raw data is available for download, showing the scheduled departure time from each bus stop, as well as the deviation (+/- in seconds) from this scheduled departure time. The data is updated monthly.

The charts and maps below show summaries of this data in a more understandable format, as explained in the description for each chart. In these summary charts and maps, late buses are defined as being more than 3 minutes late, and early buses are defined as being more than 1 minute early.

On-time performance is affected numerous factors, including traffic congestion, weather events, special events, emergencies, construction, etc… The on-time performance information presented here includes the on-time performance of buses affected by all of these events.

Data is collected from buses on a daily basis. However, due to transmission problems and data issues, a small percentage of bus data may be missing from Winnipeg Transit’s data set. As well, due to GPS and other errors, a small percentage of bus data may contain erroneous data. This data set contains the data as it is reported by the on-board computer.

On-Time Performance By Route – Past Year

This chart shows the percentage of times a bus was recorded as being early (greater than 1 minute early), on time, or late (greater than 3 minutes late) for each transit route for the past year.

On-Time Performance By Day – Past Year

This chart shows the percentage of times buses were recorded as being early (greater than 1 minute early), on time, or late (greater than 3 minutes late) for each day of the past year.

On-Time Performance (Early) at Each Bus Stop - Past Month

This map shows the percentage of bus departures from each bus stop that were recorded as being early (greater than 1 minute early) for the past full calendar month. The size of the dots shown on the map are sized relative to the percentage of early buses at that stop, i.e. the larger the dot, the more often a bus is early at that stop.

On-Time Performance (Late) at Each Bus Stop - Past Month

This map shows the percentage of bus departures from each bus stop that were recorded as being late (greater than 3 minutes late) at each bus stop for the past full calendar month. The size of the dots shown on the map are sized relative to the percentage of late buses at that stop, i.e. the larger the dot, the more often a bus is late at that stop.
