“London-based carrier Aboutown Transportation Ltd. began providing twice-daily service between the University of Guelph and downtown Hamilton Monday

There has been no regular service between the two cities since Coach Canada cancelled its service last year.

Those brave enough to make the trip with GO or Greyhound have had to detour through Toronto, taking up to four hours and paying up to $46 to cover 52 kilometres.

There has never been rail service between the two hubs.”

This is false, though. There was Rail service on both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific from Hamilton:  Canadian National ran from Hamilton to Palmerston via Galt/Preston (Cambridge), Guelph, Fergus/Elora until about 1960. CPR Service from Hamilton to Guelph ended in April 1955.

Glad to see students have an option to/from Hamilton, as a former user of this service in student days it is most welcome.
