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.

Something to watch for in Riverside Park

thanks to OPIRG and the City, with some provincial funding, Riverside Park, the jewel of Ward 2 has this helpful sign. Those derned geese sometimes make parts of our park a little less than jewel-like. This will help a bit geesesign in Riverside.JPG

Victor Davis Pool closing for repairs

Hi folks… It’s not in our Ward, but it’s just next door and I know a lot of Twovians use this great facility…. Closed for about 3 weeks for repairs.

Here’s the scoop:

 

The Victor Davis Pool at Victoria Road Recreation Centre is closing for tile repairs to the pool deck, starting September 4. The work is expected to be done by September 23.

The repair work, covered under warranty and planned for as part of the facility’s annual maintenance, will address deficiencies with the grout and deck tiles that connect with the coving—the curved surface around the pool.

During the closure, patrons can still access the arena and community rooms. Recreational and fitness swims are available at Centennial Pool and West End Community Centre.

Fall swimming lessons will begin September 30 at all City indoor pools. Registration day is Wednesday, August 29 at 7:30 a.m.
