Winnipeg WAV Pilot Project update
On January 21st, 2022, the Vehicle for Hire (VFH) office awarded the contract to begin the process for creating the Winnipeg WAV (wheelchair accessible vehicle) Accessible Centralized Dispatch system. The Winnipeg WAV is a pilot project to address improvements to accessible on-demand service, in line with the needs of both citizens and the industry.
This system does not replace your current dispatcher, and will work alongside your regular dispatching system.
Applications to join the centralized dispatch system may now be submitted to the Vehicle for Hire office.Apply for the Winnipeg WAV Pilot Project
