Potential Transit Service Interruption
Some of you might have heard about a potential strike or lockout that might happen in September. We know that many students rely on bus service to get to school and we are very concerned about how a potential interruption of transit service would affect our members. While there has been no confirmation of service disruption and we hope that a resolution is achieved soon, we want to urge you to prepare for alternative transportation in case busses are not operating as scheduled.
If you cannot walk, bike or drive to school, please consider rideshare and carpooling. The University of Winnipeg Campus Sustainability Office has some recommendations here. The UWSA will also advocate for reasonable accommodation for students to University faculty. Depending on the length of service disruption, the UWSA and Winnipeg Transit will also begin discussions to get a portion of your U-Pass refunded.
As of this time, all classes will proceed as scheduled. Any changes will be communicated via the University of Winnipeg’s website. Please visit their FAQ section for more information.
