Winnipeg Transit will no longer accept pennies or bills on its buses as of February 1st. Read more here

Effective February 1, 2013, Winnipeg Transit will no longer accept pennies or bills on its buses. The new policy goes into effect as the Department begins the first phase of a comprehensive fare collection system replacement project. In the coming weeks, Transit will begin replacing the old, manual fareboxes on all buses with new, state-of-the-art, electronic fareboxes. The new boxes will not accept pennies or paper banknotes. Only Canadian or US coins of at least a nickel or higher denomination will be accepted. Coins will be validated and counted as they are dropped through the coin slot, while payment information will be presented visually on a display screen that is mounted on the top of the farebox. Customers are reminded that operators do not carry change.
