Hamilton service changes start September 2



The Hamilton Street Railway is making a number of changes to its services, starting Sunday, September 2.

It will: extend current routes, increase service hours on current routes, re-instate routes to universities and colleges, cancel seasonal routes, adjust schedules.

The changes affect these routes: 2 Barton, 3 Cannon, 4 Bayfront, 6 Aberdeen, 7 Locke, 8 York, 10 Beeline Express, 11 Parkdale, 16 Ancaster, 21 Upper Kenilworth, 22 Upper Ottawa, 23 Upper Gage, 24 Upper Sherman, 27 Upper James, 33 Sanatorium, 34 Upper Paradise, 35 College, 41 Mohawk, 43 Stonechurch, 51 University, 55 Stoney Creek Central, 56 Confederation Park, 58 Stoney Creek Local, 99 Waterfront Shuttle, Redeemer College University Shuttle


Extend current routes

10 Beeline Express: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will extend the route westerly from McMaster University to University Plaza in Dundas to serve the new West Village Students Residence at Main Street West and Osler Drive. Express buses operating on the extended part of the route will stop at University and Forsyth Avenues, Main and Osler and at University Plaza, in addition to their current express stops east of Mac. The HSR is also increasing the service hours on this route.

Increase service hours on current routes

10 Beeline Express: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will increase the service hours on the 10 Beeline Express route. Buses will operate Monday-to-Friday middays and early evenings until 7 p.m. The HSR will not interline the 10 Beeline Express route with the 55 Stoney Creek Central and 58 Stoney Creek Local routes during the middays and early evenings, although it will continue to interline the routes during Monday-to-Friday peak periods. You’ll have to transfer among buses serving the three routes at Eastgate Terminal during middays and early evenings. Buses operating on the 10 Beeline Express route will operate on a 15-minute frequency during middays and will operate on a reduced afternoon peak-period frequency during the early evenings.

(Interlining refers to a common practice of many transit agencies. The agencies often schedule trips on two or more routes that share a common terminal. A bus and operator serving passengers on one route will then serve passengers on another route.)

The HSR will also extend this route further westerly.

11 Parkdale: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will add more late-night service on the route. The added service will help you transfer to or from new late-night trips on the 43 Stonechurch route at Valley Park.

43 Stonechurch: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will begin to operate buses on the route Monday-to-Friday evenings. Buses will operate on a 60-minute frequency during the evenings.


Re-instate routes to universities and colleges

51 University: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will again operate buses on the route from the Hamilton GO Station to McMaster University and the West Hamilton Loop from Monday to Saturday.

Redeemer College University Shuttle: Starting Tuesday, September 4, the HSR will again operate shuttle buses on the route between the Meadowlands Loop and Redeemer College University on Highway 53 / Garner Road.


Cancel seasonal routes

56 Confederation Park: Labour Day, Monday, September 3 will be the last day that the HSR will operate buses on the route in 2007. Buses on the route operate on summer weekends only from the Eastgate terminal to Hamilton’s eastern beaches.
