Winnipeg Transit Launches Transit Code of Conduct Public Education Campaign

Jan. 25, 2016

On Monday, January 18, Transit customers will start noticing a new decal and sign on Transit buses, at Transit stations and at service centres as Winnipeg Transit begins the rollout of a new safety initiative. The signs will outline the Transit Code of Conduct and the decals will remind passengers of the consequences of threatening or assaulting Transit operators.

“The goal of this public education campaign is to improve the safety and security of transit employees and customers,” said Dave Wardrop, director, Winnipeg Transit. “We are pleased to work with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1505 in the development of this initiative. Together we are committed to the delivery of affordable, reliable, and safe Transit service for Winnipeggers and visitors to our city.”

The Transit Code of Conduct, finalized in December 2015 and based on Transit By-Law No. 89/2014, was created to encourage appropriate behaviour and conduct while using transit services.

Transit By-Law No. 89/2014 was created in 2014 and its intent is to regulate the conduct and activities of transit users in order to promote the safety and well-being of employees and passengers on the transit system.

The complete Code of Conduct, Transit By-Law, and images of the decal and Code of Conduct signage are available at
