New transit advocacy group forms in Guelph

A new transit advocacy group in Guelph is inviting the public to a community meeting next month with hopes that it will eventually help to steer transit policy in the city.

Transit Action Alliance of Guelph (TAAG) is a not-for-profit advocacy group recently set up to allow the public to have greater say in the direction of public transit in the city, said Brandon Raco, one of the group’s executive members.

“Our goal is to educate the general public about what public transportation can do for our community — it’s benefits, services, funding requirements,” said Raco of the new group. We want to motivate people to help support transit when it comes to council, so council has a strong voice advocating for public transit in our community.”

The current Transit Advisory Committee is overseen by the city, said Raco, whereas TAAG is entirely funded and run by members of the public as a not for profit.
