Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport Transportation

Winnipeg Transit Public Bus

The public buses of the airport can be found outside the south end of the terminal. They leave from a bus shelter that is distinctly indicated. The available bus routes are the 15 Sargent/Mountain and the 20 Academy/Watt. When leaving the facility, they are signed as the 15 Mountain or the 20 Watt, and when heading to the terminal, they are signed as 15 Sargent and 20 Academy. The public buses are accessible frequently between the hours of 05:50 am, and 12:49 am.

The bus ticket costs between $2.15 and $2.45, or travelers can buy sheets of five or ten tickets. Monthly passes are also available for people who are planning to use the buses of Winnipeg regularly. For an hour, passengers may use the same ticket to transfer to a different bus service. Reduced prices are available for kids aged 6 to 16, and for senior travelers, and children up to five years are permitted to ride for free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult.


The airport taxis are usually always available from outside the main terminal. They can be found nearby the central terminal doors.

The official taxi agency is Unicity Taxis. A reservation is not required for the company’s services. However, travelers arriving on early morning flights may like to make sure that a taxi will be available for transport. During daytime hours there usually are lots of taxis. The taxi firms of airports generally provide cars of all varieties. The agency has sedan models that seat up to four people, as well as larger vehicles that could seat five or six passengers. Special vehicles are also prepared to accommodate the needs of disabled passengers, and they are provided with wheelchair lifts. A special taxi of this type is usually advised to be hired in advance. Unicity Taxis can be reached at the following details: Telephone number 204-925-313 or e-mail address [email protected].

Taxis in Canada, and at Winnipeg International Airport, have meters which record the number of kilometers/miles traveled. The price of the journey is then determined accordingly.

The airport is not very distant from downtown Winnipeg, and therefore by taxi, the price will be approximately $15.50 to $18.00. A trip to North/Garden City costs about $19.00 to $32.00 and by taxi to South/St. Vital the amount is between $28.00 and $32.00. The cost of the taxi journey also depends on the time of day or night that it was traveled, as taxis in the evening, later night or earlier morning, are usually more expensive. Taxis could charge higher rates on Sundays and public holidays as well. It is possible to pay for a ride in cash or by credit card.
