Changes coming to Handi-Transit in 2019
Winnipeg, MB – A new year will bring changes to Winnipeg’s Handi-Transit service including an updated scheduling system for improved service and a refreshed name to include more inclusive language.


In September 2017, Handi-Transit launched a campaign to choose a new, more inclusive name for the service, which solicited feedback from the community and stakeholders. Through this process and in consultation with the Handi-Transit Policy Advisory Committee, the name Winnipeg Transit Plus was chosen.


Since the Handi-Transit name was adopted in 1977, there have been many changes in our understanding of disability issues and the language used to describe persons with disabilities. The introduction of new Provincial legislation, The Accessibility for Manitobans Act,and its continued development provides clear direction on the use of inclusive language when referencing services for the community. A new name for Handi-Transit is one step towards a more inclusive environment for all Winnipeggers.

Here is the new Winnipeg Transit Plus Logo
