Visitor likes Guelph but not transit system

I have just returned from a welcome stay in Guelph and have to confess the only thing to mar my pleasure was the bus transit system.
I have travelled most of the world and have yet to find anything that rivals the apparently random system implemented.
Some routes operate both clockwise and counterclockwise, which is okay, but others in one direction only, making travelling from A-to-B often difficult and time-consuming.
As for the terminal, it defies logic! Why not make it simple for everyone and implement a logical numbering of the stands. For example, Bus No. 1 departs from stand No. 1, Bus No. 9 departs from stand No. 9, instead of the haphazard and nonsensical way it currently operates.
Is there any chance that common sense will come to the operation by the time we return next year? Gosh, I really hope so.

Councilor Ian Findlay(chair of transit) made a comment to the media last week that people just don’t like change or can’t assimilate.
We are one and a half yrs.in to this system and still people are complaining in great numbers.When a tourist complains council can’t blame that on the riders inability to figure this out,it clearly shows that the problems are with the routes and our city officials.
I urge everyone to complain directly to Ian Findlay,he needs to address this.
