A new, green way to travel between Kitchener and Guelph

Jeff Pickel/KitchenerToday

Kitchener start-up Wroute Inc. is now running a fleet of 10 Tesla Model X 100D vehicles departing every 15 minutes between Fairview Park Mall and Guelph Central Station.

The company says this will help address Waterloo Region's transportation and environmental challenges.

"Our approach with smaller vehicles and high frequency will fill in the gaps and encourage passengers to make use of all the existing alternatives to driving alone", says Jason Hammond, Wroute owner and president. "For instance, by combining our service with light rail transit and a few minutes of cycling, zero-emission journeys can extend across all of Kitchener, Waterloo, and Guelph."

The all-electric vehicles hold up to six passengers who book the trip online, and are expected to make over 1000 weekly trips.

The cashless trip will take up to 45 minutes, depending on traffic conditions, and will cost passengers $20 ($17.70 +HST).

Full service began Saturday, September 22, 2018 to compliment World Car Free Day
