This is the only bus that takes you directly from Toronto (Dufferin Mall) to the Hillside Festival at Guelph Lake Island.  All other buses from Toronto just take you to downtown Guelph.  This one also takes you back to Toronto on Monday morning.  What is more, this one has live music!  Yes, John Muirhead will perform on the bus! John comes to us through our partnership with Music Declares Emergency, an excellent organization dedicated to climate action. Special thanks to Guelph Transit for our shuttle buses this year!
