Bike The Exchange

The Exchange District is one of Winnipeg’s top “bike-to” destinations. With ample bike parking, dozens of Bike Friendly Businesses, and pleasant, safe routes for a casual ride in, why not enjoy the fresh air and enjoy all that the area has to offer from a fresh perspective?

New Infrastructure in 2018

McDermot and Bannatyne are seeing excellent upgrades for active transportation in 2018, making the Exchange District even more bike friendly. These new routes boast features that make your ride safe and comfortable, allowing for low-stress cycling into the Exchange District from most parts of the city all year round.


Parking

The Exchange District has tons of on-street and off-street parking, as well as heated parkades. There are plenty of payment options, whether it’s by coin, credit card or phone. With over 32,000 parking spots in surface lots, parkades and on-street locations in the downtown area, parking is available around every corner.

Winnipeg Transit

The Exchange District is one of the more connected service areas in the city. Many major bus routes filter into the Exchange District, including the 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, 21, 24 and 22.

Downtown Spirit

The Downtown Spirit bus offers a free and easy travel option in downtown Winnipeg and the Exchange District.

Bike Friendly Businesses

A joint initiative by the Exchange District and Downtown Winnipeg Business Improvement Zones, A Bike Friendly Business is one that openly supports and promotes cycling by offering services to people who ride bikes.

Any business showing the Bike Friendly Business decal will be a known part of a network of advocates supporting cycling as a mode of transportation.

Participating businesses are marked by the distinctive purple bike loop installed outside and a program decal on their storefront window/door. Each business will be stocked with Winnipeg Cycling maps, a bike pump and loaner lock(s).
