Proposed Primary Transit Network

Proposed Primary Transit Network

Winnipeg Transit’s new route network

Winnipeg Transit is gearing up to transform its route network, expected to launch June 2025. Get to know the proposed plan before it is finalized.

The new network includes a Primary Transit Network (PTN) and a network of community feeder routes.  The PTN act as the spines of the system, made up of frequent and direct bus ‘lines’ with fewer stops. Meanwhile, feeder routes carry passengers throughout communities and connect to the spines.

Only PTN Lines go downtown. That means routes with Feeder routes avoid the worst traffic congestion, keeping them on schedule. The routes that do go downtown come often enough that the impact of a late bus is minimal.

River Heights residents are encouraged to take a close look at the system map, and the routes that serve where you want to go.

Scheduling is being worked on but roughly speaking:

  • Academy will have quite a bit more frequency than today;
  • Grant will have a fair bit more frequency than today;
  • Stafford would have a little more frequency than today;
  • Corydon would be similar to today.

Transit’s proposal includes cutting the Grosvenor bus route, as that line is within a block and a half of two other higher service and more frequent routes at Corydon and Academy, and ridership has fallen in recent years.

Big versions of the map will be at public information events throughout Winnipeg.  The closest one to River Heights – Fort Garry is…
