Kids ride Winnipeg Transit for free starting in 2021

Some changes to Winnipeg Transit roll in on Jan. 1, 2021.

Starting in the new year, children are now able to ride the bus for free if they’re riding with a fare-paying customer.

This applies for children ages 11 and under, while previously only children ages five and under were able to ride for free.

Also starting Friday, one-time fares are up by five cents and monthly passes have increased from about one to two dollars depending on the pass.
