Guelph Transit’s Special Event Fare program here to stay

Guelph, Ont., June 27, 2018 – It’s official. Bus rides to and from ticketed events at River Run Centre and Sleeman Centre will continue to cost riders $1 for each one-way trip.

On Monday night, City Council voted unanimously in favour of making the Special Event Fare program permanent. The program was introduced last September as a pilot program to increase ridership and assist in alleviating parking and traffic pressures in Guelph’s downtown core.

To receive the $1 special event fare, riders must show their event ticket to the transit operator at the time of boarding. This is a savings of $2 per trip.

The special event fare begins three hours prior to the event start time and continues until end of bus service on the event day. The extended service window provides event goers the opportunity to connect with businesses and services in Guelph’s downtown before and/or after the event.
