Holiday news roundup: Guelph to integrate Transit fare / Kitchener / Barrie / Hamilton news bits

By shost at 5:06 pm on Wednesday, December 29, 2010

It would seem GO Transit is working with the City of Guelph to discount bus fares for its ticket holders — details of which are not yet known, but this is a welcome step towards fare integration with Guelph Transit and GO.

Layover facility concerns in Kitchener were heard, and if you could not attend you can still send in your comments:

Some news/progress in Barrie — something we might look forward to in our Region if GO service is popular:

New Station construction:

I am troubled by the choice of station in Stoney Creek/Hamilton — Centennial is not the easiest street to traverse during rush hour, and Fifty Road/Fruitland would be an easier alternative for many. Why not have both? Surely James Street North is also still on the table..?
