Guelph Transit is hoping some major service changes will help ease rider headaches.
Five new routes are being introduced, including a pair of university routes, two express routes, and the 99 Mainline that will run from Clair Road to Woodlawn Road along Gordon, Norfolk and Woolwich.
“And that’s 10 minute frequency all day,” said Mike Spicer, General Manager of Guelph Transit in an interview with CJOY News.
Almost all routes will be affected by the changes that kick in on September 3 and Spicer said one of the goals is to reduce the amount of transfers.
“With any change it’s going to affect individuals and one of the keys we’re finding on this is that once we’ve actually explained a lot of the changes, then people start to understand how it will affect them more positively,” he said.
Those who use the Community Bus Service will have a new ride as it will switch from a mobility bus to a conventional bus. It means passenger pick-up at the door is no longer possible at some locations.
“Without question, everyone who needs public transit will continue to have direct access. If not through the Community Bus then through our Mobility Service,” said Spicer.
All September route information is available on Guelph Transit’s website.
