Moving Guelph Forward

Guelph is growing and how we move around our city is changing. We're exploring transportation options to make our city move better in every way.


Over the next year, we will be exploring how new and evolving technology and travel services will shape the future of transportation in Guelph, and how to use our existing transportation services and infrastructure more efficiently.

We need to work together to create a strong plan for transportation in Guelph. We have tough choices to make to ensure we properly balance the needs of everyone in our community today and tomorrow.

Your input is a critical part of this process.

Definitely dangerous to people turning right on to Gordon due to poor signs

There's NEEDS to be earlier services on Sundays!People work on Sundays too. Many people are left without transportation as the earliest services start after 9am! Employers don't care about weekends, we get paid the same amount and work the same hours no matter the day of the week.Guelph is big and this is a normal standard within other transit systems in other cities, even smaller cities.Winter is coming. There will be elderly walking in the cold in the morning to get to work.

this city has become way to overpopulated. Focus on strengthening the economy of our city instead of condos to bring more gta commutors here who dont even work in this city. i lived hee my whole life and used to love it. now this population explosion of empty condos millenial trash and commutors makes me wanna leave. focus on the sex trafficing that happens everyday. meth and coke issues and our 3 year housing waitlist and homeless youth. Disgusted by this council in the padt 7 yrs.

The bigger issue in Guelph is the absurd timing of the lights on fast pace roads. For instance Victoria south the lights are timed such that if you go the speed limit you will get every red light the ENTIRE way down the road. It has taken my 30+ minutes to go from the south end to the north end of town numerous times making a round trip to the north end an hour endeavor. Countless times, in the residential areas of Victoria street, people speed well over the limit to make the lights. Not safe.

Narrowing all the main thoroughfares in the city is NOT a good idea! I never see people using the bike lanes that have been added & all it does is back up traffic causing drivers to get frustrated and aggressive. The bike lanes are only for 1 or 2 blocks, how does this help cyclists? They have dedicated lanes & then they're gone. It makes no sense. All this does is cause congestion for vehicles & adds more emissions into the air as you wait through 3 or 4 lights.

Ok not a fan of the bus only lane on Gordon. It’s crazy frickin busy here during rush hour as is and takes twice as long to get from Clair Road to Stone Road. A third lane being constructed with just one bus lane and 2 car lanes makes way more sense. Or keep it as is. I get what you’re trying to do but it sucks

The bus system all over Guelph needs Improvement. the 99 needs double length buses and the other lines need buses that run far more often then twice an hour. Adding a bus only lane is a solid part of a plan but It cannot be the only measure taken. Residents beyond the Students need to be considered. Getting from one side of the city to another takes far too long and most of that time is spent waiting for a bus that may reject you for being too full, this happens not only with the 99 line.

Even on Saturday morning at 830 there were delays driving north from my house on Periwinkle to downtown. Cant imagine how bad traffic will be Monday evening in rush hour. Taking a lane away from drivers who pay city taxes for students who do not is political suicide If the city persists with this poor idea I will start my first citizen action against a government in my life Stop pandering to the millennials they dont pay your wages yet.Remove this lane now!!!!

There could be better alignment of street crossings along the bike/walking paths. In many cases, when you have to cross a major street all consideration for rider/pedestrian safety disappears. Oftentimes there is not a cutout in the curb, or the path does not end near a crosswalk or a lighted intersection. The choice is to scurry across when there is a break in traffic or trudge up to a crosswalk. This can be daunting, especially if you are riding with children.

Dangerous bus stops. There are many stops that are located between distant intersections forcing commuters to cross busy streets to get back home. Example: Harts Lane E and W. This is dangerous. I get on at Harts E then return home to Harts W but it is an 8 min walk to the nearest intersection so I have to cross 4 lanes of busy Gordon St. traffic to get back across the street. I am sure this is not the only stop like this.

This bus only lane sounds like a terrible idea. Gordon street is busy enough with traffic, cutting it down to one lane seems even more ridiculous. I live at Gordon and kortright and getting out of my complex in the mornings is brutal enough with two lanes open, having one lane puts a lineup of traffic into one lane and makes it more impossible than it is at the moment to get onto the road. This is a dumb idea and makes no sense

I am very concerned about the plan to close one north-bound lane on Gordon Street for the Dedicated Bus Lane experiment. Gordon is a primary north-south corridor, not the place to experiment with people trying to travel north to get to work in the morning. All it will take is a few north-bound cars turning left (e.g. to enter the plaza on the north/west corner of Gordon/Kortright) in the morning to create absolute north-bound traffic chaos. This is not the route to practice on!

I use a bike for recreation. It's not feasible to use for groceries. [feedback recorded during the Greater Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph Chambers of Commerce Busness Expo]
