The Elora & Fergus Downtown Shuttle Program is back for another season! Every weekend this summer, a shuttle bus will be available to transport visitors and residents to downtown Elora and Fergus. The shuttle bus will allow visitors to park in areas outside of our downtown cores and be transported – free of charge – to key areas of the Township. This summer, the shuttle bus will commence on Saturday, May 18, and end on Sunday, Sept. 8. On long weekends, the shuttle bus will operate on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

In a continuation from last year, a Tourism Ambassador will be on board every single ride to provide support to visitors and residents while promoting our festivals, events, and local businesses! In addition, our “Talent on Board” program will continue which features local musicians with a focus on promoting emerging young talent as well as providing entertainment to those who use the shuttle. We hope to create another memorable summer for those who use the shuttle and set Elora and Fergus apart from other destinations.

The shuttle bus will operate from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., leaving the Grand River Raceway (7445 Wellington County Rd 21, Elora) every hour, on the hour, beginning at 11 a.m., and the last trip will take place at 5 p.m. Every hour, the shuttle will leave the Grand River Raceway Facility and transport passengers to the following locations:

  • MacDonald Square
  • Elora Centre for the Arts/Bissell Park
  • Wellington County Museum and Archives
  • Fergus Marketplace
  • Centre Wellington Sportsplex

The route will start over at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m., and 5 p.m. on weekends throughout the summer. New this year, we have added a stop outside of the downtown core at the Centre Wellington Sportsplex based on feedback from residents who rode the shuttle.

The Downtown Shuttle Program is a collaborative effort, and we’d like to thank our sponsors who have continued to support this program in Centre Wellington: The County of Wellington, Elora BIA, Fergus BIA, Grand River Agricultural Society, and the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce.
