Transit Pass Pilot Project
Transit Pass Pilot Project has been extended and will continue until further notice!!!!
We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the City of Guelph a reduced rate. Guelph Transit monthly pass is available to all full time and part time employees at the University of Guelph.

$68.00 effective Feb 1st, 2016
|Guelph Transit Staff Passes - Payroll Deduction||$68.00 effective Feb 1st, 2016|
Transit Passes are not available on-line. Please come to Parking Services with your employee card in order to purchase a Guelph Transit pass. Passes are usually available a week prior to the beginning of the month. Payment can be made with Visa, MasterCard, Debit, cash, cheque or through payroll deduction. These passes are not pro-rated and are non-refundable.
In addition to the immediate cost saving associated with this new transit offering, further savings can be realized through a Federal Government tax credit.
Our new "transit hub" located at the University Center offers a safe and efficient facility for transporting thousands of people daily both by city and inter-city transit carriers. Every fully loaded bus means 50 less cars on our roadways and parking lots. Since switching from driving to transit reduces carbon dioxide emissions by around 570kg per person per year, the benefits to our environment and health are substantial. If just 10% of our employees choose transit instead of single occupancy driving, the university community would reduce air pollution by 228,000 kg of CO2 per year.
Employees who participate in the transit pass program will be required to possess an updated University of Guelph employee card for use on the new swipe card system being installed on all city buses. Replacement employee cards are available through the Registrar's office in the University Center. If you have any questions about your current University ID card please contact Student Client Services at extension 58715.
We will continue to improve on our campus transportation network through the implementation of various Transportation Demand Management (TDM) initiatives, some formed based on the survey sent earlier this year, that are designated to reduce our dependency on motor vehicles to and from our campus.
The continued support and cooperation from the City of Guelph is greatly appreciated in making this project possible.
