Winnipeg's First Rapid Transit Corridor - Southwest Transitway - 2013

Dillon Consulting Limited

On April 8, 2012, Winnipeg’s first rapid transit facility, the Southwest Transitway, opened for service. The Southwest Transitway is a high-speed roadway for buses, physically separated from the regular street system. Designed and constructed during 2009-2012 by Dillon Consulting, this initial stage of the transitway includes a 3.6 km grade-separated busway, three highly-developed stations, a tunnel beneath the CN main-line, a bridge over a major arterial roadway, and active transportation facilities. The rapid transit routes use the transitway in combination with other transit priority measures and real-time passenger information systems to provide service that is fast, reliable, comfortable, and convenient, offering one-seat trips for most passengers.
