Guelph Transit marks Remembrance Day

Guelph Transit will join the community in honouring veterans on Remembrance Day by bringing all buses to a safe stop at 11 a.m. for two minutes of silence. Riders will also notice hand-drawn Remembrance Day posters on all buses, provided by students from June Avenue Public School and Isaac Brock Public School.

In Guelph, the Royal Canadian Legion Colonel John McCrae Memorial Branch 234 does an outstanding job in ensuring the memory and sacrifices of our war veterans are never forgotten. Click here for a Remembrance Day schedule.

Please join others in the community for the Two Minute Wave of Silence this Friday, November 11 at 11 a.m. The Royal Canadian Legion has produced television and radio Public Service Announcements about the Two Minute Wave of Silence. Click here to watch and listen.

    Is Guelph Transit offering free rides to veterans like other transit systems in Canada?

    Hi Steven,

    Guelph Transit is providing free shuttle service for veterans and their families from the Guelph Legion to the Remembrance Day ceremony downtown. http://guelph.ca/newsroom_display.cfm?itemID=80397

    In addition, veterans in Guelph are eligible for a free annual transit pass: http://guelph.ca/newsroom_display.cfm?itemID=79598 and How to Apply: http://guelph.ca/living.cfm?itemid=79707&smocid=2640
