Transit Improvements and Fare Restructuring

Transit Windsor is making improvements to service and convenience in 2021 through an updated fleet, extra amenities and new technology. 19 new clean-diesel buses are being added to the fleet, reducing emissions and Transit Windsor’s carbon footprint.  As well, 70 new bus shelters will be placed at stops around the city, and 147 new concrete pads will be installed for greater accessibility. The Transit Windsor Smart Ride card will see the elimination of the need for paper tickets, and real-time overcrowding software will improve efficiency.

Along with the service and convenience improvements, Transit is also restructuring fares as of Thursday, July 1, 2021.

As approved during the 2021 budget process, fares will increase by 2%. A full list of pricing can be found at

Museum Windsor - What is this?

Portrait of Henry Johnson, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He was a sailor in the British Navy and prided himself in never having been a slave.  Johnson came to Windsor in the early 1870’s and was a self-employed drayman (driver of a dray, a low, flat-bed wagon without sides, pulled generally by horses or mules that were used to transport all kinds of goods). 

He delivered goods and cargo from Great Western freighters to prominent local businesses such as Cameron and Bartlet (Bartlet, Macdonald and Gow); the Dougall brothers; and Smith and Duck.
The City of Windsor conducts surveys as a means of soliciting ideas and opinions from residents so we can better serve the community as a whole.  Check back often to see if a new survey is ready for your input.
