To honour the men and women who have sacrificed for our country, Winnipeg Transit will be offering free transit service (including Handi-Transit) to armed forces veterans, current serving personnel, including cadets and reservists, and one companion, on Remembrance Day.

Those who wish to use this free service may do so by wearing a military uniform, or by presenting a military identification or CF1 card at the time of boarding.

Winnipeg Transit will be observing a moment of silence in honour of Remembrance Day. At 11 a.m., Transit operators will pull over and stop their buses at safe locations to recognize one minute of silence.

Also in honour of Remembrance Day, the bus route/destination signs will scroll with the message “Lest We Forget” in addition to the usual route information all day on November 11.

On Sunday, November 11, Winnipeg Transit will operate on a Sunday schedule.
