Getting Around

Winnipeg Transit bus & bike rack (Source:

Travel is part of our daily life – to the grocery store, library, a friend’s house or the movie theatre. You need to get there, but you don’t want to sit and stew in traffic, or burn a lot of gas and money in the process. Find an option that fits your schedule and budget.

Walking and cycling

Pull on your comfy running shoes or tune up your bike to discover how easy, fun and fast it can be to get to work on foot or by bike.


Taking the bus is an inexpensive and easy way to get around. If you haven’t tried it in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all the new features. Try transit!


Share a ride sometimes or every day. Drive always, sometimes or never. Whatever your reasons, carpooling can work for you.


Put in a full day of work without even leaving the house. You can save yourself the time and stress of the daily commute by working from home.
