Reduced Transit Service & Low Income Pass
Reduced Transit Service
COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a 72% reduction in ridership, over this same time in 2019. Winnipeg Transit has reduced transit service by approximately 30%. Transit officials believe this reduction in service of 30% is the right amount required to balance the reduction in ridership, with the cost of running transit, the required physical distancing and a slow opening of the economy. This will be a challenging balancing act for transit over the coming months. Please contact 311 if you feel transit service should be increased or reduced over the coming months. Everyone is trying to be as flexible as possible in delivering adequate transit service.
I highly recommend always checking the times of your routes at Winnipeg Transit Navigo
