On October 18, 2015 at 9:09 a.m., the Guelph Police went to Farquar Street and Wyndham Street for a collision between a pickup truck and a city bus.
The Gordon Corridor bus route is used to pick up riders along Gordon Street during peak times between the University of Guelph and the Clock Tower (located at the intersection of Gordon Street and Clairfields Drive). This bus service is only offered when an extra bus is available and is meant to assist during high traffic periods. It is not regularly scheduled and should not be a rider’s first choice for travel planning.
Look for the Gordon Corridor on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 7:30 a.m and 11:30 a.m, and 2:15 p.m to 6:15 p.m.

This has been an 18-month process with 22 days of negotiations, including 7 with a provincially-appointed conciliator. Unfortunately, we have been met with unexplained delays from ATU – which signals one of two things: they are unwilling or unable to bargain.
It is my sincere hope that our transit employees will take a second look at the City’s offer this weekend – it represents a fair and competitive offer for our employees and is respectful of those who pay for the service. We hope to have our community’s transit service up and running again as soon as possible.
