HSR service changes come into effect December 27th

The City of Hamilton is adjusting the service levels of HSR bus service before the end of the year.

Beginning Sunday, December 27th, 2020, schedule updates are being implemented by the HSR to ensure there is a reliable and sustainable plan for service to continue.

HSR will remain on a weekday service at a summer level on most routes, with the equivalent of a 100% seated capacity. This would mean a combination of seated/standing 30 customers on a 40-foot bus and 50 customers on a 60-foot articulated bus. With the mask By-law in place, City of Hamilton Public Health are not recommending HSR move to a reduced capacity at this time. Wearing a mask on public transit provides the best protection where physical distancing is hard to maintain.

Beginning Sunday December 27th routes 1, 2, 4, 5, 11, 12, 16, 18, 20, 43, 44, 52A will operate regular weekday service and route 42 will operate on Saturdays. Routes 3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 41, 55, 58 are operating a reduced weekday service (service reduced during peak periods only) while routes 9, 51, 56 and 99 will not operate.
