How to Get to Winnipeg
Winnipeg’s main airport, the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, is located just 4.4 miles from downtown’s Portage and Main. The major rail services are the Via Rail and Union Station, which was designed by the same architects as New York City’s Union Station. To get to your destination from the airport or train station, consider the Winnipeg Shuttle Service or public transportation, or look into private transportation by taxi, car rental, or limousine. Driving to Winnipeg is made feasible by using the Trans-Canada Highway. Since Winnipeg is not known for walkability, outside of designated spaces like the Exchange District and River Walks, using another means of transportation is recommended.
