Changes could be coming to the policy for the City of Winnipeg’s low-income bus pass.

The city’s public works committee is holding a meeting on Tuesday, where the ‘WINNpass’ will be discussed. This is a program that allows individuals with a low income to buy monthly transit passes at a reduced rate.

Currently, organizations that help new immigrants can help a person qualify for the pass.

Now, the public works committee will vote on whether to allow non-profits that help people dealing with poverty to also help people qualify for the bus pass

According to the city’s website, there will also be a presentation regarding the one-year review of the WINNpass.
