Winnipeg — Expanding Bus Rapid Transit
The City of Winnipeg is moving forward with the next phase of its Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, re-affirming their commitment to innovative and forward thinking public transit solutions. BRT will move more people, more quickly and create powerful solutions to many challenges facing the city. It will have a positive impact on economic development, downtown revitalization, renewal of inner city neighbourhoods and environmental stewardship. Bus Rapid Transit will allow Winnipeg to play a key role in helping meet Canada’s climate commitments, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from cars and achieving smarter growth. It will also have an economic impact: the initial construction investment is estimated to generate 775 person years of work in the engineering and construction industry alone.
