Effective December 15, 2021, as part of its ongoing commitment to operator and passenger safety, Winnipeg Transit’s new emergency signal system will be fully operational on all Winnipeg Transit buses.

The new system will allow operators to alert members of the public outside the bus and the Transit Control Centre at the same time, that emergency responders are needed. When operators enable the signal, exterior bus signs will read “Emergency Call 911” and “Do Not Board Bus”.

Intending transit passengers as well as other members of the public are asked to call 911 and stay off the bus if they see this message.

Bus operators are trained to use the signal in an event where emergency responders are needed.

The emergency signal system was developed in consultation with the Transit Advisory Committee.
