On May 2, 2021, Guelph Transit launched its on-demand bus service to complement its conventional bus service.
Fostering easy, accessible movement within the city of Guelph, on-demand service provides convenient, affordable, and reasonable transportation options for everyone.
On-demand differs from conventional transit in that there are no fixed routes or schedules, and buses are dispatched on a request-basis. This means more flexibility for customers as they can book a ride when it’s most convenient for them.
It also improves connections to workplaces in Guelph that aren’t currently serviced and improves the safety, efficiency, and connectivity of the whole transportation network.
Guelph Transit’s smaller buses service pre-determined locations within Guelph city limits as part of the community on-demand service. Whereas conventional-size buses service the Hanlon Business Park and Hanlon Creek Business Park as part of the Hanlon on-demand service.
The on-demand bus service moves the City closer to meeting its goals set out in the Strategic Plan priority of Navigating our Future by improving connectivity of the whole transportation system.
