Keeping Winnipeg Transit Plus safe in light of COVID-19

What we’re doing to keep you safe

Winnipeg Transit Plus increased the frequency of cleaning of all its vehicles with the arrival of the pandemic as part of our ongoing commitment to keep customers safe while using our service.

As we continue to honour this commitment, drivers for our service take a number of precautions before you enter any of our buses or vehicles, including:

  • Self-screening for symptoms of illness prior to the start of every shift, using tools developed by Public Health
  • Dressing in personal protecting equipment, including masks and gloves
  • Wiping down high touch points, including door handles and seat belts, with sanitizer

Other safety measures we’re taking include:

  • Using equipment such as PPE, plexiglass shields and hand sanitizer to ensure the safety of all parties during in-person appointments for assessments, equipment reviews and appeals
  • Frequently sanitizing our facilities

Masks, self-screening and more: your role in safe transit


The City of Winnipeg is strongly recommending that all individuals wear a non-medical face mask while using Winnipeg Transit or Winnipeg Transit Plus as a means to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This also applies to Transit Customer Service Centres and other City facilities.

Masks or face coverings should not be placed on: any child under the age of two, any person who is unable to remove it without help, or any person who has difficulty breathing.

More information on how to safely wear a mask is available on the Winnipeg Transit Response to COVID-19 page.

Hand hygiene and other steps to take

  • Please avoid taking Transit Plus if you are not feeling well.
  • Maintain a reasonable separation between yourself and others when possible.
  • Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands regularly and refraining from touching your face.
  • We encourage you to carry your own personal disinfectant when you travel, such as hand sanitizer or wipes.

Manitoba Health has recommended that we avoid close prolonged contact with others and staying at home when you don’t feel well is the best way to protect yourself and others.

Visit the City of Winnipeg website for more information on the City’s overall response to COVID-19.

Customers who may have health risks or health-related concerns are encouraged to wear medical masks while riding in Winnipeg Transit Plus vehicles.
