Downtown Shuttle Program

Every weekend this summer, a shuttle will be available on Saturdays and Sundays to transport visitors and residents to downtown Elora and Fergus.  A shuttle allows visitors to park in areas outside of our downtown cores, and be transported, free of charge to specific areas of the Township.  The shuttle will commence on Saturday June 4.  

On long weekends, the shuttle will operate on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (except for the Canada Day long weekend, where it will run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
