Transit does rent out its buses to groups and organizations if they are available.

Need a big ride to help celebrate a special birthday or event coming up -- rent a "bendy" bus.

Winnipeg Transit has proposed charter rates for its 20, 60-foot articulated buses –of $182.25 per hour.

Hurry, because the rate jumps $5 an hour beginning Sept. 1.

An administrative report prepared for Thursday’s public works committee said the charter rates are consistent with those from other municipalities.

Transit does rent out its buses to groups and organizations if they have one, and a driver, available.

The proposed rate for the articulated buses is a 50 per cent premium over the cost of renting a regular bus ($121.50 per hour) but Transit thinks the "bendy" bus will be very popular, even with the steeper price tag.

"The additional capacity of the bus is expected to present good value for the heavy passenger demands of this market," states the report. "Some demand for the articulated buses may also exist due to their novelty."
