The gas tax program provides municipalities with two cents per litre of gasoline sold in the province during the previous year.

This funding can be used to extend service hours, buy transit vehicles, add routes, improve accessibility or upgrade infrastructure.

Guelph’s share for 2021 is $3,242,087, an increase of nearly $100,000 from 2020 when the City of Guelph received $3,150,233

According to provincial numbers, the city received about $40 million through the program since it began in 2004.

Some experts say this money should go toward increasing services and not infrastructure as seen in this tweet. TAAG endorses this and encourages the City of Guelph to use the Gas Tax for increased frequency and reliable service.
