The Record: “GO Transit to build terminal in Aberfoyle” — Guelph GO expansion summary

By shost at 10:41 pm on Friday, June 29, 2007

The Record has published an article basically summarizing the Guelph GO bus expansion plans. On June 29, the article, as titled in this post discusses the new Aberfoyle park and ride, as well as the following:

“GO Transit is launching two new routes from Guelph in early September. It will run nine trips a day from the University of Guelph through Aberfoyle, Square One shopping mall in Mississauga, and on to the Cooksville GO station.”

and goes on to say the following:

“Eight buses will run daily on the second route, from the university through Aberfoyle, Meadowvale and Bramalea to York University. The buses will largely run during peak hours, with a few evening and late-night trips.”

More transit is always a good thing, but the city has been lobbying for GO trains as well as the bus service to offer commuters a variety of options, said Rajan Philips, a transportation manager with the city.

GO Transit said it will put in rail service to Guelph as demand increases. But spokesperson Edmund Shea said that’s likely a long way away.”

– Yes, a long way¬†away. Guelph residents should be proud of the service that we have — Waterloo region could only be so lucky.

The new service is expected to carry 350 to 450 passengers per day to start.
