BUSgadget decommissioning

The technology that powers the BUSgadget desktop application is aging and Winnipeg Transit is no longer able to support its functioning.

As a result, BUSgadget has been decommissioned.

BUSgadget will no longer display accurate schedule information for routes selected by users.

Winnipeg Transit encourages passengers who need schedule information to use Navigo on their desktop computer or use BUSguide on their mobile device.
