On March 22, the Federal Government announced $82.8 million in funding for transit capital projects for Winnipeg. This announcement spurred a number of transit advocates in Winnipeg to work together on a list of our priorities for transit capital investments needed in the short, medium and long term. Functional Transit Winnipeg is proud to have been at the table throughout the process helping to shape this document.
Our recommendations were submitted to Winnipeg Transit and was followed by a meeting with Transit Director Dave Wardrop and Councillor Janice Lukes. We appreciate the interest Councillor Lukes has shown in our recommendations and the assistance we received from her in setting up a meeting with Winnipeg Transit.
