How to Reach Winnipeg
- Since Winnipeg is the capital of Manitoba, the city’s international airport is quite active and receives flights from all major airlines.
- Greyhound Canada and Grey Goose provide bus services to Winnipeg from across the continent. The main bus depot is at the airport.
- Via Rail and Union Station offer train services to and from Winnipeg.
- If you’re planning to drive down to Winnipeg, the city is well connected along the Trans-Canada Highway. Depending on where you’re coming from, there are designated exits which you should take.
- Winnipeg is a fairly big city and navigating around it as a tourist can be a little intimidating. All streets have names and the major routes of the city have both names and numbers, so before you set out for the day, note down the names of the streets you’re going to be stopping at.
- Although the best way to see any city is on foot, Winnipeg is not ideally a walking-centric city. Before you set off on a street, look for signs that might warn you against walking on the streets; underground crossings are available should such a situation arise.
- There are a few bicycle lanes in the city demarcated by diamond marking. There are a great number of rules that cyclists should follow, so before you set out, learn the rules.
- The best way to get around town would be through public transit. Winnipeg has bus routes that run throughout the city. Visit their website to check their schedules and tickets.
- If all else fails, take a taxi to get from one point to another.
