25-year vision

for our transit system

Phase Two of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan public engagement has begun.

We want to hear your feedback and input into the proposed network design,

What we heard in Phase One of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan shows that Winnipeg’s transit network needs to change to move the most people where they want to go, quickly and reliably. To make transit more efficient, frequent and reliable, we are proposing a new transit network as part of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan.


The proposed transit network is based on data about how people travel around Winnipeg and what we heard in Phase One.

In Phase Two of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan, we are sharing information about:

  • Different types of service matched to different levels of demand for transit, including a primary network that provides frequent service along Winnipeg’s major streets.

  • Different types of places to connect to transit that make it easier and more comfortable to change buses.

  • How using transit will change with the proposed network.

  • The proposed routes of the new network.


In this phase of engagement, we are asking for your feedback on the proposed changes, including the proposed routes. To learn more about these proposals, visit the Proposed Network Tab.


Stay informed

Stay up-to-date on the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan project by signing up for updates: transitmasterplan@winnipeg.ca.

Regular updates will be shared on the website and on social media as we work on the plan. You can also read the report on what we heard during the first phase of engagement.

The Winnipeg Transit Master Plan will be shared with Winnipeggers in 2020, along with a report that explains how public input was used to shape the plan.

For inquiries or those who require alternate formats or interpretation to participate, please contact Maureen Krauss at 204-944-9907 or transitmasterplan@winnipeg.ca.

The project team will talk with Winnipeggers about how they currently use transit, what is important to them, and what they would like to see in the future. This information will be reported in a white paper that identifies key areas for further study during the development of the Transit Master Plan.

Thank you to all who provided feedback at one of our public events or through our online platform for Phase One of the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan. View the engagement summary in the Documents tab.

Phase Two: Proposed network design

In this phase, we will share a proposed network design to make transit more efficient, frequent and reliable. We will share information about how the proposed network will help people get around the city and the proposed routes that are part of the network. We will ask Winnipeggers for their feedback on the proposed network design, including proposed routes.

Phase Three: Review draft plan

The project team will share a draft Transit Master Plan with Winnipeggers and ask for their feedback. Public input will be included with the final Transit Master Plan presented to the City.



Once the final Transit Master Plan is presented to Council for consideration in spring 2020, it will be shared with Winnipeggers. We will also share how your input was used to shape the plan.

For Immediate Release

Wednesday, October 16, 2019


Winnipeg, MB – Crews continue to clear and remove downed trees and fallen branches city-wide, aided by contractors and crews from other Canadian municipalities. Crews from the City of Regina arrived yesterday, while crews from the City of Saskatoon are anticipated to arrive today.


Residents are reminded to be mindful of crews working on roadways. If a tree is blocking a roadway, or if crews are on a roadway working, please refrain from driving through the site and do not drive around them on medians or boulevards.


Residents are also reminded to not park adjacent to failed trees and large limbs that are still attached to the tree so that crews can access them.

Reporting Downed Trees

Residents are advised that if a tree is in contact with a power line, to call 911 immediately.


If a tree is blocking a public right-of-way including a road or sidewalk, but isn’t touching a power line, residents are advised to call 311.


If a tree on public property has fallen, but not touching a power line or blocking the road, contact 311 online.

It’s important that residents provide as much accurate detail as possible when providing information, including pictures if available, so that service requests can be properly triaged.


Once a request has been made, it is logged. We are asking residents to only make one request per location – please do not contact us for a follow-up, the location has been logged and we will get to the location as soon as possible.


Privately Owned Trees

Fallen trees or branches that have failed on private property are the responsibility of the property owner to clean up. However, residents are advised to contact 911 if the tree is in contact with a power line.


Residents are reminded to exercise extreme caution if addressing fallen trees or branches that have fallen on private property.

Do not leave fallen trees or branches from private property on the public boulevard. Instead, residents are advised to bring tree and branch debris to the Brady Road Resource Management Facility or to one of the City’s 4R Winnipeg Depots to dispose of them free of charge during operating hours.


Residents can also place small tree branches and other debris in their yard waste collection. For more information on yard waste parameters, please see: City of Winnipeg – Yard Waste Collection.

Moving Firewood

The Forest Health Protection Act and Regulations prohibit the storage of elm wood for any purpose. The restriction on the storage of elm wood is necessary as the elm bark beetle uses intact wood as a site to lay eggs and develop a new generation of elm bark beetles. For more information, see: City of Winnipeg – Dutch Elm Disease.


Residents are advised to dispose of ash trees directly to the Brady Road Resource Management Facility or to one of the City’s 4R Winnipeg Depots. No ash tree material is to be transported outside city limits in accordance with federal regulation related to emerald ash borer. For more information, see: City of Winnipeg – Emerald Ash Borer.



Report a crime online 

When to dial 911

All calls are important, but not every call is life threatening.

Call 9-1-1 for emergency situations. 


Emergencies are defined as:

  • Any crime in progress (break & enter, robbery, etc)

  • Any situation where people or property are at risk (fire, children on ice, etc)

  • Any medical emergency (heart attack, accidental poisoning, etc)

When Dialing 911

  • Stay on the line, stay calm and explain the emergency, as well as the full address where the emergency is occurring. The address and telephone number from which you are calling is automatically displayed to the operator (unless you are calling from a cell phone).

  • Through appropriate questioning, the 9-1-1 operator will determine what you are reporting and then transfer you to the appropriate Emergency Service (Police, Fire or Paramedics).

  • Let the operator control the conversation and stay on the line until you are told to hang up.

  • On very rare occasions, you may get a recorded message when dialing the 9-1-1 emergency line.Do not hang up. Your call will be answered as soon as an operator is available.

  • If you are unsure if something that is happening is actually an emergency, dial 9-1-1 and report what is happening to the operator. If they decide it is not an emergency, they will simply ask you to hang up and call the non-emergency telephone number.

The City is currently undertaking the Wolseley to Downtown Corridor Project to identify options to improve travel choices, accessibility and connectivity.

When completed, the corridor will provide improved connections to the Omand’s Creek pathway, the protected bicycle lane on Assiniboine Avenue and Sherbrook Street, the bike lane on Maryland Street, and the planned neighbourhood greenway on Ruby Street.


The study area runs east-west through Wolseley Avenue/Westminster Avenue, Balmoral Street, and Granite Way. As part of the study, the project team will seek input from various stakeholders in the project area to help determine the specific alignment and other important considerations in the design process.

The design will not include a re-route of Winnipeg Transit to Home Street.

September 2019 – The project team is currently refining pedestrian and cycling improvements for the Wolseley to Downtown Walk Bike Project. As a result of detailed discussion with civic departments, public feedback, and further technical assessment the proposed movement of bus transit to Home Street was not selected for further investigation within the scope of the current project. A letter to residents is available under the documents tab.


May 2019 – Phase 2 has begun. Share your input on design options and alternatives through an online survey or in-person at a pop-up, guided walk/bike tour or workshop event. See the Engage tab for survey link and in-person event details.


March 2019 – Development of preliminary options is currently underway. The timeline of this project has shifted, with the phase 2 of the public engagement program planned to begin this spring and will ask for your input on design options and alternatives.


January 2019 – Results from Phase 1 of the public engagement program are now available as a public engagement summary and report under the documents tab.



A Partner in UN Women Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces Global Programme



In 2013, Winnipeg was selected as the first city in Canada to join the UN Global Safe Cities Initiative to reduce sexual violence against women and girls.

The Safe Cities Initiative supports innovative approaches to preventing and reducing harassment and sexual violence against women and girls in public spaces. I am the chairperson of this Committee for the City of Winnipeg.

Manitoba Status of Women and the City of Winnipeg are partnering with UN Women, representatives from the Winnipeg Police Service and community groups on this initiative. After signing onto the initiative, Manitoba Status of Women, the City of Winnipeg and community and government representatives established the Winnipeg Safe City Steering Committee. The Winnipeg Safe City steering committee identified a five neighbourhood site to target efforts to address this serious crime.
