Winnipeg Transit

Carry-on Bag Policy

Due to space limitations, passengers are permitted to carry only two small bags on Winnipeg Transit Plus vehicles. Passengers are expected to carry on their own packages and to hold them on their laps during the ride. Passengers may be denied transportation in the event that they have too many parcels to transport.

If you bring more than the allowable packages, you can choose whether to board with only two bags and find alternative transportation to carry the remaining packages, or decline the trip.

If the trip is declined, you will have a no-show occurrence listed on your record and may be subject to penalty fees.


Backpacks and other bags attached to mobility devices can cause difficulties when securing the mobility device and during transport. When using a backpack, remember:

  • Backpacks cannot obstruct aisles, seating or entrance/exit ways of vehicles.
  • If a backpack exceeds the standard length of the mobility device it is attached to, the backpack must be removed.
