Open House Shows Off Bus Rapid Transit Plans

Dozen of Winnipeggers got a chance to have a look at the proposed plans for a new southwest rapid transit corridor on Monday. The system would move passengers from the downtown to Jubilee Avenue as part of Phase 1, which is estimated to cost $138 million.

Construction is slated to begin this summer, with plans for a second phase extending all the way to Bison Drive near the University of Manitoba to follow.
