Sightseeing Winnipeg

Transport

Winnipeg is a large, spread-out city, and it can take a while to get around. Unlike most North American cities this size, there is no urban freeway network in the city.

Public transportation service is adequate to good in the inner part of the city and on main suburban roads, but only fair to poor in outer suburban areas and some bus routes run only infrequently during the evening or on weekends.

Traffic jams, particularly in the downtown area, are common during the rush hour periods which are generally from 0730 to 0900 and 1530 to 1730 Monday to Friday.

Much of Winnipeg's downtown real estate is devoted to parking, with ubiquitous and cheap surface lots continuing for multi-block stretches. It is worth considering renting a car, especially if any excursions outside of the city are planned. 

Winnipeg Transit, +1 (877) 311-4974 or 311 (local), has bus routes running throughout the city. Service is generally good on major routes in the inner city but only fair to poor in the outer suburban areas. The Winnipeg Transit's website includes schedules and a helpful travel planner called Navigo.

Automated schedules are available through Telebus, +1 (204) 287-7433. Handi-Transit, +1 (204) 986-5722, is available for disabled persons.
