Taking the Hillside Bus

Hillside provides free shuttle bus service for patrons and volunteers. The bus leaves downtown Guelph from St. George’s Square on Quebec St. at Wyndham.

If you have your Hillside ticket with you:

Please exchange this for a wristband with a volunteer at the Guelph bus stop before boarding. You can then stay on the bus all the way to the island entrance. Downtown shuttles may stop at the Gate Tent to allow those without wristbands to exit, then, a separate shuttle bus will take those patrons to the island entrance.

If you need to purchase or pick up your ticket, or register as a volunteer/vendor:

Exit the bus at the Hillside Main Gate Tent and get in the queue to get your wristband or laminate. Then either take a parking shuttle bus or walk to the island entrance. Signs from the Gate Tent will direct you to the Green Path, which can be used to reach the island quickly.

The downtown Guelph shuttle bus stop is at the former bus terminal on Quebec St. at Wyndham. Hillside volunteers will exchange your ticket for a wristband. Ticket exchange will take place at the bus stop from 3:30pm-9pm on Friday, 9:30am-7:30pm on Saturday and 9:30am - 2pm on Sunday.
