Research shows that investing in more buses and bus frequency on existing routes is the best way to create a functional transit system for all Winnipeggers. We are a grassroots group of Winnipeggers advocating for making Winnipeg’s transit network accessible, affordable and frequent.

Why invest in buses and bus frequency?

 Buses are flexible and can be allocated to routes with the highest demand.

Research shows that investing in higher frequency bus service has the largest effect on increasing ridership per dollar spent.
In a cash-strapped city, we need to invest in flexible, all-day service that makes transit competitive with other modes of transportation.
