Connecting Waterloo Region and Guelph to Burlington and frequent rail services

Fairway Station

Find us just North of the new ION light rail transit platforms between Leon’s and Hudson’s Bay.

At the geographic heart of Waterloo Region – and the local transit system – is CF Fairview Park Mall, a prime shopping destination connected to the full breadth of a bustling city. Head inside the mall for adventures in retail, or to grab a bite to eat in the food court. Use Grand River Transit buses to complete your journey, or better yet stay electric by hopping on the brand new ION Light Rail Transit service to downtown Kitchener, midtown KW, uptown Waterloo, and the universities.

Guelph Central Station

NEW LOCATION – As of April 1st 2019 we are moving from the 72 Farquhar Street passenger drop-off facility up to the main transit terminal on Carden. Find us along the fence between the Guelph Transit bus platforms and the railway station driveway.

All your transportation options are integrated at this downtown focal point. Hop on GO Transit and VIA Rail trains, or let Guelph Transit give you access to the whole city.

Check out the independent shops and restaurants that give the area its unique character, or take a very short walk to key destinations such as City Hall, the Sleeman Centre, and River Run Centre.
