You are invited to our First Annual Transit Summit & Town Hall

Come hear from transit experts plus have your say directly with Guelph Transit Management.

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. 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 free half day event will feature prominent speakers who will have information-packed presentations about local and regional transit. There will also be a short workshop from City of Guelph staff about the Transportation Master Plan as well as an update from Guelph Transit 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 and take comments from the public. 

Registration is suggested but you can drop in anytime.
