This Saturday, the Transit Action Alliance of Guelph (TAAG) will be hosting the first ever Transit Summit and Town Hall in Guelph, On.
This free half day event will feature prominent speakers who will be bringing information-packed presentations about local and regional transit issues. Speakers will include Vincent Puhakka of transit advocacy group TTCRiders, the President of Transport Action Canada, Terry Johnson, well known transit blogger Sean Marshall, and Jennifer Juste from the City of Guelph who will talk about the Transportation Master Plan.
Guelph Transit will also be on hand to update everyone on the implementation of the 12 recommendations from the Transit Business Service Review. All of our speakers will then participate in a Public Town Hall to answer questions from public.
“This is an opportunity for the community to get involved, meet like-minded people, learn more about how transit works, and help shape the direction of our transit system” says Steven Petric, Chair of the Transit Action Alliance of Guelph, “By educating and engaging the public on transit, we hope to expand the movement on making transit more frequent, affordable, and accessible for all.”
This event will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 161 Norfolk St. in Guelph. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and run from 12:00 to 5:30 p.m.. The venue is wheelchair accessible and light snacks and refreshments will also be available.
The Summit and Town Hall is free to attend, however, due to limited capacity; it is recommended that attendees register online in advance at www.taaguelph.com/transitsummit
