Shuttle service to the fireworks

On Canada Day, July 1, Guelph Transit will provide a direct Fireworks Shuttle Service between Guelph Central Station and Riverside Park. Regular Guelph Transit fare structure applies to the shuttle service.

  • From Guelph Central Station to Riverside Park. Shuttles will depart from platforms 5 and 20, leaving at 8:45 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Passengers will be dropped off as close to Riverside Park as possible, as road closures may prevent the buses from travelling on Woolwich Street past Speedvale Avenue.
  • From Riverside Park to downtown. Shuttle buses will be available from the Woodlawn Road entrance to Riverside Park leaving from approximately 10 p.m. until 11 p.m. Five shuttle buses will also be parked on Woolwich Street at Speedvale Avenue, available on a first-come-first-service basis.
