U of W bus loop moved to Sherbrook Street

  • Print

The University of Winnipeg and Winnipeg Transit will move a campus bus-loop to a temporary terminal on Sherbrook Street for at least one year.

This afternoon, the University of Winnipeg released a statement saying the city's transit service has agreed to conduct a year-long pilot to assess whether Sherbrook Street can be a permanent home for the Spence terminal.

The Spence terminal stopped operating last fall due to the construction of the university's new health and recreation complex. The U of W said in a statement two alternatives were proposed: moving the buses on Furby Street/Furby Place and Langside Street or a Young Street/Langside Street loop.

Daycare parents objected to one alternative which would have seen transit buses rerouted to Furby Street and Furby Place, next to the campus daycare and student residence.

Winnipeg Transit had been operating a temporary terminal in front of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, according to a news release, but the location did not meet the city's needs. The temporary terminal was moved to Sherbrook Street between Broadway and Portage Avenue in mid-March.

Winnipeg Transit and the university may revisit the bus loop's operations in a year's time pending the assessment of the temporary station, the U of W statement said.
