The Splash Dash Water Bus will begin operating on Friday just in time for the long weekend.

The water busses stop at six city docks every 15 minutes and take off from The Forks down the Red and Assiboine rivers.

“We are really happy to be back on the on the water, this is going to be a fantastic year for the Water Bus service I predict,” said Gord Cartwright, owner and operator of Splash Dash Water Buses. “There is no better way to commute to work or see the city from a different vantage point than from one of the Water Buses.”

The service operates throughout the summer (noon to 8 p.m.) on a regular schedule with service to Corydon Avenue, Osborne Village, the Manitoba Legislative Building, The Forks, Norwood and the Exchange District. One way fare from any dock to any other dock is $3.50. Day passes are available for $15 per person.
