Winnipeg, get from A to be B on Winnipeg Transit with less OMG 🚀

Public transit in Winnipeg started out as the Winnipeg Street Railway Company on October 20, 1882, where riders would pay $0.10 in the summer and $0.05 in the winter to ride on a horse car. It’s morphed over the years seeing wood electric cars, gasoline powered buses, streetcars, trolleys, and today, diesel buses. It’s no surprise that a system with over 130 years of service comes with a few hiccups, and that’s why Rocketman is here to help.
