Winnipeg considering Ottawa-style Transitway

A CP report says that Winnipeg is inching closer to developing a rapid-transit system. According to the story, the city is short on funding compared to other Canadian cities. But some stakeholders are looking at the nation's capital for tips.
Lacking the type of oil money that helped pay for light-rail services in Edmonton and Calgary, Winnipeg is eyeing a system similar to the Transitway bus service in Ottawa, where buses speed along dedicated roads in the outskirts and special bus-only lanes downtown.
