Transit bus hoisted in a transit garage

We are building a new bus garage in northwest Winnipeg at the intersection of Oak Point Highway and Selkirk Avenue. The new garage will replace Transit’s existing North Garage on Main Street. The existing North Garage is beyond its useful life and is too small for future needs.

Transit needs a modern garage to accommodate approximately 250 buses that have unique characteristics, including:

  • 60-foot articulated (”bendy”) buses
  • Buses with bike racks
  • Buses with roof-mounted air conditioners
  • Zero-emission buses

The garage will also include an energy efficient bus storage, service, and maintenance facility.

Background

Winnipeg Transit operates a fleet of more than 600 buses from three locations: 421 Osborne St., 600 Brandon Ave., and the North Garage at 1520 Main St. 

The North Garage is our oldest garage, was built for buses of a different era, and is too small for future growth. A new Transit garage will be built in Point Douglas Ward at the intersection of Selkirk Avenue and Oak Point Highway so we can continue to meet rider’s needs.


 This new garage will be home to approximately 250 buses, including:


  • 60-foot articulated ("bendy") buses
  •  Buses with bike racks
  •  Buses with roof-mounted air conditioners
  •  Zero-emission buses

 It will also include an energy efficient bus storage, service, and maintenance facility.

The design phase is underway and will be finished by the end of 2024. Construction is expected to start in 2025 and finish in 2027. 

This project is receiving funding through the Public Transit Infrastructure Stream’s Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. This includes contributions from all three levels of government:

  •  Government of Canada: Up to $73.0 million 
  •  Province of Manitoba: $60.8 million 
  •  City of Winnipeg: $48.7 million
