Coach Canada cancels Hamilton-Guelph bus service

By shost at 1:39 pm on Wednesday, September 9, 2009

A blow to students and people who study or work/live in Guelph or Hamilton.  As a previous user of this service  it leaves even fewer direct routes between both cities..

What alternatives are available? I don’t believe Greyhound has direct service. Users can connect via Toronto (GO Transit, VIA Rail, Greyhound) but at the cost of a two hour drive (versus about 45 minutes of the previous route). Anyone with knowledge in this regard, please feel free to add in the Comments section.
