Have your say on the Guelph Transit Fare Strategy by April 10

We’re on our way to a ‘fare’ future with engagement for Guelph Transit’s Fare Strategy launching today and running until April 10.

The fare strategy is an in-depth review of Guelph’s Transit’s fare system including our fare programs and policies, pricing payment options and fare structures. The strategy sets out how decisions about the fare system are made, helps us modernize our transit service, looks at how to get more people riding Guelph Transit, and identifies new revenue sources to help keep transit affordable.

Visit haveyoursay.guelph.ca to share your ideas about how the transit fare system is changed over the next 10 years through an online survey, open houses and virtual workshops. We’ll also be polling riders at Guelph Central Station and Stone Road Mall.

Help us understand:

  • What fare programs would make transit more financially accessible
  • How changes to fares can make transit better
  • Who our riders are and how to create equitable fare structures
  • What we can do to get you riding Guelph Transit if you don’t already

We’ll use your feedback, information about transit systems in cities like Guelph, transit best practices and trends, staff expertise, and data from programs like kids ride free to create a fare strategy for the next 10 years.
