Guelph Transit riders will notice a new message on Carden Street.
Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW) Board members and staff were joined by Guelph Transit officials July 8 to unveil a new bus shelter advertisement to the public. The shelter advertisement, designed to promote CSGW’s social media platforms, as well as highlight the toll-free number to report crime and the webtip option, is a new initiative for the program.
Those on hand for the unveiling of the new CSGW advertisement on Platform 21 Guelph Transit Bus Shelter include, from left, Guelph Fire Services Chief John Osborne, CSGW Board member John Svensson, University of Guelph Campus Community Police, Fire Safety & Emergency Services, CSGW Office Coordinator Leesa Keleher, CSGW Board member Marlene Coughlin, Guelph Police Service Inspector Andrea Ninacs, General Manager Guelph Transit Robin Gerus, Manager Transit Operations Jason Simmons, Transit Advertising Sales Coordinator Matthew McDonald of Guelph Transit, and CSGW Board member Dave Elloway.
“We are pleased to work with Guelph Transit on this new mode of awareness,” said Rick Beazley, Chair of the CSGW Board of Directors. “Developing partnerships in the community continues to strengthen Crime Stoppers.”
Program Coordinator Sarah Bowers-Peter added that the shelter is part of an ongoing mission to increase awareness of CSGW.
“This shelter is a terrific way to reach out to public transit riders who are residents of the city of Guelph, and those coming in by train who are visiting this community,” she stated. “It’s great that one of the first things someone will see when they come to Guelph is a bold statement that Crime Stoppers is alive and well here.”
The bus shelter advertisement, located on platform 21 at Guelph Central Station, north of Carden Street and opening onto Macdonnell Street, is part of Guelph Transit’s new advertising opportunities. The shelter advertisement will boast the CSGW message until June 30, 2020.
