Winnipeg Transit is proposing improvements to bus routes in southwest Winnipeg to coincide with the opening of the Southwest Transitway (Stage 2) in spring 2020, including a new spine and feeder network, subject to Council approval.
The implementation of the proposed new routes using a spine and feeder network will ensure optimal use of Winnipeg Transit’s resources so that it can improve the delivery of efficient, fast, and reliable transit service for residents in the southwest of the City.
The proposed network changes include a central spine, with feeder routes. The proposed BLUE Line is the backbone of the Southwest Transitway, providing frequent high-speed service between Downtown, the University of Manitoba and St. Norbert. Short routes will connect neighborhoods in southwest Winnipeg to the transitway but will not operate on the transitway.
A mobile Ideas in Motion bus will be popping up in communities throughout southwest Winnipeg in early April where residents will have an opportunity to learn more about the proposed system and route changes, and share their input with the project team in person. An online survey is also available on the project website until April 15, 2019.
