Two projects will expand Guelph’s public transit fleet while supporting its transition to clean energy transportation.
The first project involves the expansion and enhancement of the cycling network in Guelph. Construction of new accessible bike paths and improvements to bike path intersections will improve safety for cyclists and provide direct access to the city’s public transit system.
The second project consists of the construction of a new Guelph Transit terminal building at Guelph Central Station that meets accessibility and energy efficiency standards. The new building will include passenger waiting areas and public washrooms, as well as amenities for transit employees.
Together, these investments will make it easier for cyclists and public transit users to get around their community safely while protecting the environment.
The Government of Canada is investing more than $1.8 million to the cycling network expansion and $2.7 million to the Guelph Central Station project through the Public Transit Infrastructure stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Government of Ontario is providing over $3 million, while the City of Guelph’s contribution is more than $11 million to both projects.
