The city of winnipeg followed the typical North American development pattern of suburban growth, involving both residential and employment related developments. The downtown lost some of its retail prominence as regional shopping centres were developed. As employment concentration increased outside of the downtown core, transit routing patterns also changed from being primarily radial to include an increasing number of cross town and feeder routes to serve the various suburban trip generators, including shopping centres. The transit modal split for these suburban destinations is typically lower than for the downtown. This is due to free or low cost parking, lower traffic congestion levels, and the higher chance of transit trips requiring a transfer. This paper summarizes the transit planning process involved to service four particular shopping centre developments in the city of winnipeg.
