TRANSPORTATION & PARKING

Now that Fringe has sprawled all over the city, accessible transportation is more important than ever. Need help navigating the city streets? We can help! We've found the best parking, best transit routes and even the best boats that will get you to your Fringe destination.

GOMANITOBA

No car? No problem! Find a healthy and/or sustainable way to get around with GoManitoba. Use this platform to facilitate carpools or compare alternate forms of transportation like walking, busing and public transport.

They even have an app!

THE RIVER SPIRIT WATER BUS

Take to the waters with The River Spirit Water Bus. Enjoy the River Spirit’s dock-to-dock service for $4 for a single trip, or $20 for a day pass. The Forks dock will leave you a hop, skip and a jump away from the Fringe festivities. CLICK HERE for a map.

BICYCLE PARKING

If you're choosing to exercise your way to the Fringe, we have bike racks galore! We recommend leaving your bike at our supervised bike rack at 180 Market Ave. courtyard. Here, your bike will stay locked up safe while our Volunteers and Safety Staff keep an eye on it from 10am-12:30am. 

Old Market Square also has public bike racks to use.
