Free Transit on New Year’s Eve!

Ring in 2019 with a free ride

Ride Guelph Transit for free after 7 p.m. on New Year’s Eve

Are you celebrating the start of a new year with family or friends on December 31? Enjoy all the night has to offer and get home safely with Guelph Transit for free.

Starting at 7 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Guelph Transit will offer free rides on all of its routes. Service is also extended to accommodate partygoers with the last bus leaving Guelph Central Station at 2:15 a.m.

Thank you to Sleeman Breweries Ltd. for making the New Year’s Eve service possible through a generous, exclusive three-year partnership. In 2016, the brewery partnered with Guelph Transit to provide free public transit and to remind partygoers if they are going to drink, to not drive.

Guelph Transit gearing up for September

 

Minor stop and schedule adjustments to routes 3, 17, 18 and 41

Guelph, Ont., August 23, 2018 – There’s a flurry of activity happening behind the scenes at Guelph Transit to get ready for September, as residents and students return from summer vacation.

“As part of our ongoing effort to improve the service for riders, we’re training 11 new drivers and making some minor adjustments to schedules,” says Robin Gerus, interim general manager at Guelph Transit. “Look for the changes to take effect on September 4.”

In addition to the new drivers, who are expected to hit the road next month, adjustments are being made to three bus schedules and one bus route.

· Route 3 Westmount: Monday to Friday, every 30 minutes 5:45–7:15 a.m. and 6:15 p.m.–12:15 a.m.; and every 20 minutes 7:15 a.m.–6:15 p.m.

· Routes 17 Woodlawn Watson and 18 Watson Woodlawn: minor tweaks to schedule

· Route 41 Downtown-University Express: relocating route based on transit operators’ recommendation and the ongoing Wilson Street parkade construction. Bus turns right on Wellington Street at Gordon Street (no longer goes north on Norfolk Street); new stop added at Wellington at Gordon eastbound; and stop removed at Gordon at Nottingham northbound

For students attending or returning to the University of Guelph this fall, service resumes on the university routes as of September 4.

Route schedules and trip planning can be found at guelphtransit.ca. Printed route schedules and maps are available at City Hall, Guelph Civic Museum, Evergreen Seniors Community Centre, West End Community Centre and the Victoria Road Recreation Centre.
