Winnipeg Transit Plus is changing the way they deal with trip bookings. As of October 6, 2021 the hands-transit provider will be moving to a first-come, first-served system of booking trips.
According to the City the new system will be more efficient and allow them to shift resources in the event of cancellations and no-shows.
“We’re pleased to see this change going forward, as it will improve accessibility and lead to a more flexible service that can better meet customer demand,” said Councillor Matt Allard, Chairperson of the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works.
Under the new system customers will be given a 30 minute pickup window instead of the current system that provides specific times. Customers can choose to receive reminders of the booking the night before their scheduled trip and again about 15 minutes before a driver arrives.
