Commercial ground transportation

Anyone providing transportation services at, to, or from Winnipeg Richardson International Airport must obtain an annual ground transportation licence from Winnipeg Airports Authority prior to offering or providing transportation services.

To obtain a ground transportation licence, please contact our Lease Administrators. A ground transportation licence grants you permission to provide transportation services on a pre-arranged basis only. To provide on-demand or public transportation services, please contact the Information Booth.
