Jump on a bus and you can leave the stress of driving behind you. According to the University’s 2016 Transportation Survey, 40% of students and 20% of staff and faculty travel to campus by transit. Winnipeg Transit currently operates thirteen transit routes to Fort Garry campus, ten to Bannatyne campus and four to William Norrie campus, including a number of rapid transit and express route options.
The City of Winnipeg's Rapid Transit construction project at the Fort Garry Campus is scheduled to be completed by December 17, 2017. This construction is part of the early works for the Southwest Transitway project. Stage 2 of the project will be completed in late 2019, with operation beginning in April 2020.

You can now say goodbye to paper tickets and transfers with Winnipeg Transit’s new peggo card. Visit one of UMSU’s Answers booths in University Centre on Fort Garry campus or in Brodie Atrium on Bannatyne campus to purchase or reload your peggo card.
Park & Ride
If you don’t live within walking distance of a great transit route, you still have options. Winnipeg Transit has 11 designated Park & Ride locations around the City. Simply park your vehicle in a designated space and hop on a bus. No need to worry about traffic or parking.
Bike and Bus
Transit offers a few bike storage and transport options for those who may be in biking distance of a great transit stop. On select routes (160, 162, 170) you can load your bike on a bike rack located on the front of the bus. Read Transit’s loading instructions and give it a try! Or, park your bike in one of Transit’s bike lockers located at rapid transit stations (Fort Rouge, Osborne and Harkness), and Osborne Junction and Taylor Park & Ride sites. Use your U-lock to secure the locker door and be sure to retrieve your bike before 1 a.m. each day.
Transit’s bus fleet includes a number of accessibility features such as next stop announcers and easy access low floor buses. Visit Winnipeg Transit's "Accessible Transit" page for more details.
Transit routes at Fort Garry campus have been temporarily re-routed onto MacLean Crescent as work begins on the second phase of the Southwest Transitway project. Watch for further details in UMToday.
