Guelph station is a railway station in Guelphmarker, Ontariomarker. It is served by six VIA Rail trains daily (three in each direction) running between Sarniamarker and Torontomarker.

History

Built in 1911, the station is a classic example of early 20th Century Canadian railway station design and has been designated as a heritage structure per the Railway Station Protection Act. It is located in the city's downtown core at 79 Carden Street at the corner of Wyndham Street, and is convenient to city buses and adjacent to an intercity bus terminal. Parking is free, and the station is staffed and wheelchair-accessible.

In the past, Guelph was in the also served by GO Transit trains (starting in 1990 as the terminus of the Georgetown line), but provincial cutbacks in 1993 led GO to pull back the railway service to Georgetownmarker. In the fall of 2007, GO Transit announced it was starting an environmental assessment on track upgrades required to resume rail service to Guelph.

GO still serves Guelph with buses, which depart from the adjacent Guelph Bus Terminalmarker and sometimes from the University of Guelphmarker, and then interchange with trains at Georgetown.

The City of Guelphmarker is planning on building an Inter-Regional Transit hub beside the current train station and along Carden Street to where the current bus station sits. The current bus station will be torn down.
