The Path Forward

Transportation Choice

Today, the predominant mode of travel in the City of Winnipeg is by private automobile, a trend that began in the 1960s as development patterns became more auto-oriented. Providing greater transportation choice will be the key to reducing Winnipeg’s reliance on automobile travel. The City has already moved toward increased choice by investing in quality transit corridors, taking the first steps toward rapid transit, and pursuing significant improvements to the active transportation network. By increasing transportation choice, the quality of life, economic vitality, and system efficiency can be significantly improved.
