Public engagement on the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan (WTMP) has now concluded. Thank you to all those who provided feedback on the draft plan.

The final Winnipeg Transit Master Plan was adopted by Council on April 29, 2021 as the long-range strategic plan for public transit in the City of Winnipeg.

The plan includes an entirely new transit network to better respond to the needs of residents, with a system that is designed to be resilient, changing and adapting as the city grows. The new network is based on a frequent transit network concept adapted to fit Winnipeg which will more than double the number of Winnipeg households within a short walk of frequent transit service once completed.

Rapid Transit infrastructure expansion serves as the core of the system. The planned Rapid Transit network is comprised of six rapid transit corridors linked together to form three Rapid Transit lines that extend throughout the city. In turn, shorter routes within neighbourhoods will link up to the frequent and rapid transit networks to create an integrated network. The first priority for Rapid Transit is the downtown infrastructure, including an elevated transitway that would establish Union Station as the city’s flagship mobility hub.

The Winnipeg Transit Master Plan also includes changes to Winnipeg Transit Plus to create a more seamless, integrated, and universally accessible network that better integrates conventional transit service with On-Request service and Winnipeg Transit Plus.

With the approval of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan, Council has also approved six corresponding capital projects. These projects have been put forward for consideration under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) and are pending approval by the Provincial and Federal Governments. Other future capital projects resulting from the Master Plan will also be subject to funding and Council approval.

This page was created to assist with public engagement throughout the development of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan. Following the adoption of the plan by Council, this page is being archived and will no longer be updated.

Updated information about ongoing and upcoming improvements to transit being guided by the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan will be available throughout the Major Projects section of this website.
