Transit changes on campus

August 29, 2017 — 


Reminder: The current Maclean Transit stops will be relocated to University Crescent for September 2-3 to accommodate student residence move-in over the weekend. For a full look at transit re-routes, view the PDF here.


Winnipeg Transit has set up temporary stops to accommodate riders during the reconstruction of the University Cresent / Chancellor Matheson and Dafoe / Music Building bus stops.


  • One stop has been located on Dafoe in front of the former Faculty of Music building at 65 Dafoe Rd. (now the Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning), east of existing stop.
    • The path around the original stop is not accessible. Please note you will need to use the Dafoe crosswalks for accessibility.
  • Another stop has been located on Dafoe at the University Crescent intersection on the south side of Active Living Centre.


The current schedule indicates the bus stops at these two locations will be complete roughly mid September. To be confirmed as the University is provided with more information.

AUG. 16

Construction by the City of Winnipeg and Winnipeg Transit continues on the portion of the Southwest Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project that runs through the Fort Garry Campus.

The university has been informed that transit shelters have been demolished at University Crescent and Chancellor Matheson by Frank Kennedy, and at Dafoe by the former Music Building (now the Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning) – and both bus stops have been removed by Winnipeg Transit. 

Currently and until August 19, these bus stops have been relocated to University Crescent south of Dafoe  (during Canada Summer Games and decommissioning).

This re-route moves back to Maclean on August 20. The University is confirming with Transit whether other stops will be provided.


For information about the Maclean re-routing, see our previous story about the BRT:
