Winnipeg’s transportation system

  • Tom Campbell, pastor, Zion Church

    It would be good to have rapid transit. Buses are good overall. The lights aren’t sequenced. The mayor has talked about doing that, I’d like to see it happen.

  • Liyana Fauzi, barista, Soma Cafe

    6.5/10. Some people will go when Telebus tells them to go, and they have to be at work or school for a certain time, and then sometimes the buses run super late.

  • Rick Vincent, musician

    I think that given the state of the streets and avenues, the transportation system is pretty good at getting people where they need to go.

  • Panganai Sithole, 4th year economics

    I’m a pedestrian. I find going to remote places cumbersome. But generally it’s OK.

  • Carla Chornobi, 2nd year psychology

    It would be nice if there was more for bikes. It’s good that Portage is down to three lanes in some places. I’m a motorist.

  • Mandy Whitechurch, 4th year kinesiology

    There needs to be improvement. Bus times ... they don’t run at all hours.
