Free rides continues on Guelph Transit

Web posted on March 26, 2020

Guelph Transit is offering free rides transit.

The decision was made in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 by eliminating the need for people to come to Guelph City Hall to buy or renew bus passes.

Late-night bus service to the University of Guelph has been cancelled.

The city's buses operate on a 30-minute schedule from Monday to Saturday.

"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," Guelph Transit General Manager Robin Gerus is quoted in a statement.

Officials ask riders to exit buses via the back doors unless they have accessibility needs.

Mobility service customers are being asked to avoid any non-essential travel.
