    The first priority is to provide adequate shelter at the Carden St. Depot — i.e. enclosed structures like that.portrayed at the blog.

    I don’t see why we are worrying about shelters right now when we have all the loop buses missing their connection at the GCS.I have been walking for 20 to 25 minutes every day since Feb3 just to make sure I can get the 20 Ind. bus I need.
    For me to use the 2A loop I would have to be on an earlier bus and wait around for 20 minutes for the #20,this wastes 30 minutes of my time in total before I even get on the #20.
    Karen,you have a statement on this blog about cutting commute times as much as possible,and you make frequent statements about how important it is for kids to have a proper breakfast and how important family is,transit has a slogan that “they are working harder to get us on our way”
    All the people using the loop routes are forced to be on earlier buses,adding commute time,not in any way cutting it.Any parent using these loop routes and having to leave earlier in the morning are losing at least 20 minutes with their kids.
    We need to restore routes like the Woolwich run which actually served its area very well and made its connections,we cannot have an 80 minute perimeter route that touches both Woodlawn and Stone road being the only one serving the Woolwich area.

    Thank you for your e-mail. I understand that our staff have responded to you with regards to your concerns.

    City staff have responded with form replies like “we appreciate your feedback” or “Guelph has recently undergone some changes to transit”.
    What the public needs is for you,council,and transit to actually address the problems,we have had 17 months of lack of service to the square,lack of stops,missed connections and far too many people running for and missing buses.
    The city needs to make a statement to both newspapers asking the public how we feel about this system.You should be very concerned about the problems.
    We deserve and have a right to have a say in this and we have not gotten that.
