TRANSPORTATION & PARKING

TRANSPORTATION

Now that Fringe has sprawled all over the city, accessible transportation is more important than ever. Need help navigating the city streets? Whether you want to hop on local transit, catch a boat (really!) or use active transit, you're in the right place!

WINNIPEG TRANSIT

Winnipeg Transit connects the city with more than 5000 bus stops within city, including several routes that will take you right to the centre of the Exchange District!

Plan your trip with Navigo!

THE RIVER SPIRIT WATER BUS SERVICE

Enjoy convenient river transportation to five city docks provided by Splash Dash Water Bus. Servicing each dock about every 15 minutes, The River Spirit navigates through the centre of Winnipeg along the historic Red and Assiniboine Rivers.


The River Spirit operates throughout July and August on a regular schedule with service to the Corydon Avenue area, the Legislative Building, The Forks, Norwood, the French Quarter and the Exchange District.

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!

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 located at 180 Market Ave. aka the Pantages Playhouse courtyard. Here, you'll be able to lock up your bike while our volunteers and safety staff keep an eye on it from 10am–12:30am. 

Old Market Square also has public, unsupervised bike racks to use.
