some good news. In my opinion, which isn’t that humble really, I think cutting the frequency of our buses for the summer was one of the biggest mistakes council made at budget time, and we have to take collective responsibility for it. Looking to improve this situation come NEXT budget time in the fall. We thrive more as a city the more ridership we have on public transit, and we won’t increase that ridership until we keep the service reliable and frequent. James
Guelph, Ont., June 28, 2016 – The City of Guelph will add buses to busy routes starting Monday, July 4, in an effort to improve Guelph Transit service for riders.
Additional buses will run weekdays at various times on the following routes:
- 2A/B West Loop
- 3B East Loop
- 5A Gordon
- 8 Stone Road Mall
- 10 Imperial
- 11 Willow West
- 13 Victoria Road Recreation Centre
These extra buses will allow residents to make connections at Guelph Central Station and the University Centre, and reduce pressures on various routes.
It is anticipated that these additional buses will improve service for riders; however, delays due to construction, detours and traffic congestion may result in unexpected or unavoidable service delays and missed transfers.
The additional buses will be in place from July 4 to September 2.
Regular weekday peak and off-peak service will return on September 6.
