Wroute
#1
There's a new all day two way "transit" service between downtown Guelph and Fairview Park Mall, called Wroute. Apparently every 15 minutes, can bring your bike, and the ride is in a Tesla.

Pricing is definitely premium at $20, more like a Greyhound without a discount, but not totally out of line with the (much less convenient) alternatives.

Neat idea! Always good to have more options.

...WRoute is actually an incredibly clever name... as much as I love ION, that would have been a great close second for our LRT!

Jeff Pickel (570 News) was on the first departure from Fairway today, at 6:30am.

One neat thing I noticed in the photo on their website - bike racks!

From their site:

Quote:BICYCLES ARE WELCOME.
Our vehicles can accommodate up to two bicycles per trip, allowing you to extend the zero-emission journey throughout the community. We’ll ask you to lift your own bike into place, and we’ll work with you to ensure all the restraints are in place. Please remember to remove anything that might come loose during the trip! Always travel with your bike – the bicycle owner must be on board the same trip. If you are cycling, please don’t pass a Wroute vehicle on the right-hand side except in a marked bike lane.

This is awesome! I might actually do this; throw my bike on the back, go for a ride in a Tesla, and enjoy some cycling in Guelph.
