#Guelph Helper Buses Coming July 4th! @GuelphTransit
We’re making improvements to our summer service. We’ll be putting ‘helper’ buses out on the road starting July 4. These helper buses will be scheduled during peak service times, allowing the buses to stay on schedule and for passengers to connect at Guelph Central Station and the University Centre.
The helper buses will arrive at Guelph Central Station or the University Centre up to 10 minutes in advance of the regularly scheduled buses, in time to make transfer connections. The helper buses will generally depart before the regularly scheduled buses arrive at Guelph Central Station or the University Centre.
Catch a helper bus weekdays, July 4 – September 2:
10 Imperial 7:21 a.m.-5:40pm
11 Willow West 7:23 a.m.-11:37am and 2:23 p.m.-5:40 p.m.
13 Victoria Road Recreation Centre from 7:21 a.m.- 6:10 p.m.
The helper buses will also be used on other routes where there are ongoing service and connection issues. These buses will be put in service daily on Route 2A/B West Loop, 3B East Loop, 5A Gordon and 8 Stone Road Mall during peak times.
The helper buses will provide drop-off service only at Guelph Central Station and at the University Centre. While providing service along a route, the helper bus will pick up and drop off any passengers who are waiting at the bus stop. These buses will also have the same destination sign as the regular buses, but the sign will change to ‘not in service’ when arriving at Guelph Central Station and the University Centre.
Helper buses will be out on the road weekdays, from July 4 to September 2.
Regular weekday peak and off-peak service will return on September 6.
