Where’s the Pathway in BRT ?

There has been a sudden and fundamental change in the Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor. Representatives from Winnipeg Trails Association, The Forks, Prairie Pathfinders Walking Club, Bike to the Future, Winnipeg Rapid Transit Coalition, and the Manitoba Cycling Association are are launching an awareness campaign to highlight the disappearance of the Active Transportation Corridor. For years an Active Transportation Pathway has always been contemplated as an integral part of this project. Two weeks ago it just disappeared.

In the current Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor design plans, the South Osborne Underpass is blocking the pathway thereby eliminating the Active Transportation Corridor and essentially making the Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor simply a bus rapid transit corridor.

These two letters were sent to the Premier, Mayor and elected officials.

Please contact your elected officials and encourage them to design a safe, connected pathway as part of the Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor. It’s critical to all Manitoban’s that a safe, connected Active Transportation Corridor be incorporated into the plans now. Please share this message with your contacts.
