Welcome to the home page of the campaign to Keep the 50-50 provincial transit funding legislation. We successfully convinced Winnipeg’s city council to look into creating a frequent transit network in Winnipeg, now we’re fighting to maintain provincial funding guarantees which are necessary to make any improvements to our transit network. We believe it is in the province’s interest to support municipal transit agencies and we need your help to communicate that message!

There are many ways you can help make the difference for transit in Manitoba. Click here to check out our campaign page and find out more.
