Today the City of Hamilton launched HSRnow, a new mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
The HSRnow mobile app is free to download and use. Customers can download the app by visiting hamilton.ca/hsrnow. This fresh trip planning option was funded through the federal government’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) and is one of many projects that support the City’s 10-Year Transit Strategy that strives to grow the ridership.
Customers can use the app to:
- Plan their trips from A-to-B;
- Get real-time next bus information for close-by stops;
- Sign up to receive stop and route notifications, and text or email alerts.
Customers using other mobile apps or services to obtain their HSR bus information (e.g.: Google Transit, Transit App, MonTransit) may continue to use these apps and these products will continue to work as they always have. HSR remains committed to providing real-time bus information as part of the City of Hamilton’s Open Data initiative, so that customers have choices for which service they prefer to use.
