The City of Guelph is getting close to 9.7 million dollars in federal transit funding.
The cash, with an equal amount being matched by the city, will go towards public transit projects.
The bulk of the funding – nearly $7.4 million – goes towards bus replacement. Another 1.3 million will be spent on new fare boxes, and around 500-thousand to upgrade a transit control system to coordinate traffic signals on major streets.
Another half-million will be spent on upgrades to bus stops and developing a Transportation Master Plan.
312-projects were announced across the province today under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.
