Free transit until April 30; 30-minute schedule Monday to Saturday
Guelph, Ont., March 26, 2020 – Starting today, Thursday, March 26, Guelph Transit is making additional service changes as part of the City’s response to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Service changes include:
- maximum 10 people on the bus at one time
- blocking off select seats so customers can practice physical distancing while riding the bus
- asking customers to only ride the bus for essential travel (e.g. work, medical appointments and grocery shopping)
These changes are in addition to other changes announced earlier this month:
- cancelling late night bus service and not operating university express routes
- offering free transit service through April 30, 2020; removing the need for people to come to City Hall to buy/renew bus pass/OnYourWay fare card
- asking all customers to board and exit the bus using the rear doors. People with accessibility needs can continue to board and exit using the front doors.
- operating on a Saturday schedule (every 30 minutes) Monday to Saturday, until further notice. No impacts to Sunday service/frequency.
“We know service interruptions are disruptive and inconvenient, but we think it’s the best way to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our customers and employees,” says Robin Gerus, Guelph Transit’s general manager.
Not feeling well?
- Do not use public transit if you are feeling unwell, or you have travelled outside Canada within the past 14 days.
- Mobility service customers are asked to avoid all non-essential travel. Mobility services will be screened as many are older adults who may be more at risk of severe illness.
