Tonight at the University Centre, waiting for the northbound #99 Mainline was a cold and perilous experience. It's hard to say what the problem was - a busy night at the university, a missing bus - but what it was, it created a dangerous situation as hundreds of University of Guelph students waited in front of platform #12 for their ride downtown.
I don’t know @guelphtransit, this seems like a lot of people waiting for a bus that runs every 10 minutes... pic.twitter.com/vRupg6mDBh— Adam A. Donaldson (@adamadonaldson) January 18, 2018

A #99 North just picked up a bus load. Here’s how many that are left. pic.twitter.com/Khxr7XJzs1— Adam A. Donaldson (@adamadonaldson) January 18, 2018

The good news is that everyone was picked up by 7 pm after three buses came in quick succession, and everything seemed like it was back on schedule.
UPDATE: Steve Petric of the Transit Advisory Committee tells me that transit drivers have told him that traffic was jammed along Gordon, and there was extra loads because it was Frosty Mug night at the Sleeman Centre.
