Has your service been affected by the bus shortage?

  • Haseb Arianta, First-year student

    “I mainly bus to the North Kildonan and Transcona areas. I haven’t really noticed a difference.”

  • Nicole Roberta, Third-year student

    “I just take the 11 to North Kildonan. The only way it has affected me is that they're late sometimes. One time it took me 50 minutes to get to school when it usually takes 30. But that's about it.”

  • Sara Holenthal, First-year student

    “I live west of the U of W, more towards Polo Park. It’s close, but I sometimes go to U of M to study as well. I have to wait a lot longer. It takes up a lot of my study time.”

  • Preston McGillivary, Non-student

    “To be honest, I haven't even noticed. I've taken the bus every day and I've been on time to work and where I have to go. My routes are from (Osborne) Village to Polo Park.”

  • Gord Roy, Non-student

    “It’s definitely affected me. Sometimes we go to football games and a lot of people are asking what's going on. We notice that there are less buses on the road... Instead of taking 15 minutes, it's 20 to 45 minutes.”
