As longtime supporters of public transportation, we are writing to you to seek your help and invite you to our first community meeting on October 10th, 2018.

Public transportation is facing critical challenges today. On the one hand, our transit system has never been stronger. In Guelph, ridership is at record levels this year and we expect demands will continue to grow. Our future continues to look bright.

Yet, in order to meet these increasing demands, our system must continue to invest in the operations and infrastructure needed to maintain our facilities and expand to meet future needs. This will take additional investment by our local government in partnership with provincial and federal governments.

We understand the vital role that public transportation plays in our community — providing opportunities for people from every part of our community to get to jobs or visit family; contributing to economic development; saving energy; reducing pollution; and alleviating traffic.

That is why we are inviting you to become a member of a new community non-profit group that has been formed to promote greater awareness and support for public transportation in our community and among our local, provincial, and federal officials. The group is called the Transit Action Alliance of Guelph (TAAG). We encourage you and/or your group to sign up as a member.

We hope you will join us at our free Community Meeting!
