Ride bus for free to River Run, Sleeman Centre events

Guelph, Ont., September 7, 2018 – Put your loonies away. It’s now free to ride Guelph Transit to and from ticketed events at River Run Centre and Sleeman Centre.

“Thanks to our friends at Royal LePage Royal City Brokerage, we’re now able to offer the Special Event Fare program at no cost to riders,” says Robin Gerus, interim general manager at Guelph Transit.

To receive the free special event fare, show your event ticket to the transit operator at the time of boarding—to and from the event.

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 you with the opportunity to connect with businesses and services in Guelph’s downtown before and/or after the event.

Earlier this summer, City Council voted unanimously in favour of making the Special Event Fare program permanent. The program, which initially cost riders $1 per trip, was introduced last September as a pilot program to increase ridership and assist in alleviating parking and traffic pressures in Guelph’s downtown core.
