GUELPH - Phil Meagher isn't surprised to hear that the public is confused about Guelph Transit rates and service after last week's marathon, two-night budget meeting.

The general manager of Guelph Transit is scratching his head as well - and crunching the new numbers he has to work with in 2016.
"It was like following the bouncing ball," he joked on Monday, referring to the drastic change from what staff had recommended in the budget, where transit was left at the end of Wednesday's budget meeting, and where it wound up on Thursday when council approved a 2.99 per cent increase to the city's overall operating budget.
"That means less revenue than forecast," Meagher said. "We'll have to figure out how to manage it."
Low fuel prices have helped transit and if that continues, there might be some savings, Meagher said. And the Amalgamated Transit Union's contract doesn't expire until 2017, so at least labour costs are known and fixed.
Meagher said Guelph Transit is entering into negotiations with the University of Guelph to decide a rate for students. Every U of G student can ride Guelph Transit for free during the school year; the cost is included in their tuition.
Meagher said there will be a referendum on campus in February and the new rates will take effect in September 2016.
Meagher said it's difficult to expand service when ridership growth has been slow. While new routes have been floated as a way to increase convenience and ridership - and they are eagerly anticipated by transit riders - the funding hasn't come to implement the new system, Meagher said.
It will have to be put off for the 2017 budget, he said.
The approved budget with lower fares means even less revenue for Guelph Transit than forecast, so it will be a challenge to balance the budget in 2016, Meagher said.
"Eventually a fare hike will have to happen," he said.

Phil Meagher, general manager of Guelph Transit, confirmed Tuesday that the city's contract with Pattison has the seven-bus minimum requirement for advocacy groups.

"The city's vendor for advertising on Guelph Transit's buses is Pattison Outdoor Advertising," Meagher said in an email. "Through this vendor, advocacy groups are required to purchase a minimum order of seven ads."
He said the change in the minimum order was not a change in city policy, but the result of a vendor change.
Meagher said the city is examining its policy's around advertising on city assets. After receiving the petition, city staff was directed to create a corporate policy regulating advertisements on city assets "consistent with current applicable provincial and federal legislation, and in line with the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards as created and administered by Advertising Standards Canada."
Staff is in the process of creating the policy, and for the time being ads will continue to be accepted for city buses so long as they meet Guelph Transit's advertising guidelines, Meagher added in the email.
