With the implementation of 20-minute bus service this summer, the City of Guelph will be posting fixed transit schedules with much more user information for riders.
(please note that this is only sample and that the route information is not accurate)
How many signs are being installed?
There are 969 Information Posts being installed at the 683 bus stops in the city; each route at the bus stop will have its own sign. There may be a few bus stops that do not have Information Posts installed due to the location of the pole.
When will the signs be installed?
The installation is currently under way with a target completion date of Monday July 7, but weather, shipment delivery, and printing may cause a small delay in installation.
Will Next Bus continue to operate?
Yes. Next Bus and the Information Posts provide schedule information to the ridership in different ways. Next Bus provides real-time bus arrival information that is accessible through the internet and telephone, whereas Information Posts are located at the bus stop providing information to those who are waiting there.
The Information Post provides the following information:
- Route and Stop name
- Next Bus contact information and Stop ID
- Route Map
- Stop times
- Fare chart
- Guelph Transit contact information
