For thousands of years the Indigenous of the region used various networks of rivers across what is now known as the province of Manitoba. The Forks became an early meeting place for the purpose of trade. Situated at the confluence of the Red and the Assiniboine in what is now downtown Winnipeg, the Forks would prove to be the most important location for European and First Nations trade in Manitoba. The common method of transportation on these waterways during this time were often birch bark canoes generally used by the Indigenous while European traders would tend to use York boats. Overland transport in the 19th century was often by ox-drawn Red River cart, which could be built and maintained using only locally obtained material.

  • Transport in Winnipeg involves various transportation systems, including both private and public services, and modes of transport in the capital city of Manitoba. According to Statistics Canada, in 2011, the dominant form of travel in Winnipeg was by car as a driver (69%), followed by commute trips using public transit (15%), as a car passenger (7%), walking (6%), bicycle (2%), and other modes (1%). In the province of Manitoba, transportation is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, representing almost half of the personal emissions for households. As such, the City of Winnipeg government aims for its residents to ultimately adopt sustainable transport methods—i.e., walking, cycling, and public transit—as their preferred choice of transportation. Transportation structures within the city are the responsibility of the Winnipeg government's Public Works Department. More generally, transportation in Manitoba is regulated by The Driver and Vehicles Act and The Highway Traffic Act. Moreover, insurance is mandatory in the province, and is made available via Manitoba Public Insurance and Autopac brokers. (en)
