ATU Local 1505 Winnipeg

Home

Winnipeg- The Amalgamated Transit Union 1505 called on Winnipeg Transit to immediately bring in a rear boarding policy to protect front line bus operators during COVID-19. The ATU has also requested that Transit suspend fare collection and clearly articulate to the public policies regarding social distancing and public transit, which Transit has so far neglected to do. Both rear door boarding and a fare free policy would minimize potential contact between the operator and the riding public and allow social distancing upon boarding.
