Weekday Holidays Can Be Confusing!


What’s open? What’s free? Is it midnight yet?!


Here’s what to expect in Winnipeg when it comes to what’s what over the next two days!


Winnipeg Transit

Take a free ride on New Year’s Eve beginning at 7 pm until the last bus leaves downtown.

City buses will run on a Sunday schedule on New Year’s Day.



Residents do not have to pay for on-street parking after 5:30 pm today and all day on New Year’s Day.


Garbage and recycling pickup

There’s no waste collection scheduled for New Year’s Day.

Garbage and recycling will be picked up a day later than usual for all those whose collection falls on Jan. 1st until the end of the week.




Manitoba Liquor Marts

City-wide liquor marts will close by 6 or 7 p.m. tonight.

All stores across the province will remain closed on New Year’s Day.

The majority of grocery stores in the city will offer limited hours today while most will be closed on New Year’s Day.
