ATU 1505 calls for increased operational and infrastructure funding to recruit and retain operators and maintenance workers, expand services, and also provide adequate service delivery to our citizens.

Operational funding allows Winnipeg Transit to hire and maintain quality staff to operate and maintain an efficient and reliable transit service.  Winnipeg currently spends "less on transit per capita than other major cities of similar size" (CCPA, 2022, p. 136). 

Our transit workers repair and refurbish existing buses, which translates into substantial cost savings for the City. 

The City has a bus fleet of 640 diesel buses with a lifespan of 250 KM, or 12 to 15 years.  To maintain the fleet, 50 buses must be replaced yearly. Currently, the city only purchases an average of 25 buses a year. 

This means that about 300 buses a year are serviced in-house by our transit workers, which extends the lifespan of a bus for another 10 years.  This service keeps existing buses operational and saves the City from purchasing new buses.

Public Transit can play central role in reducing Winnipeg’s greenhouse gas emissions.
