Hamilton rapid transit public information meetings this week

The City of Hamilton will host two information meetings this week for residents interested in the future of public transit in the city.

As part of the City’s rapid transit feasibility study, the City is hosting the two open houses for staff to present tentative plans for two rapid transit lines and to get your feedback on whether the City should explore bus rapid transit or light rail transit for the lines.

You can drop by the meetings on:

Tuesday, May 6
6:30 until 8:30 p.m.
Sackville Hill Seniors Recreation Centre,
780 Upper Wentworth Street
Staff will make a presentation at 7 p.m.


Thursday, May 8
6:30 until 8:30 p.m.
Board of Education,
100 Main Street West
Staff will make a presentation at 7 p.m.

In February, 2007, Hamilton City Council endorsed the Hamilton Transportation Master Plan, which proposed three rapid transit lines in the City:

  • An east-west line between Eastgate Square and McMaster University along the Queenston Road / Main Street / King Street corridor;

  • A north-south line between the Hamilton waterfront and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport; and

  • another east-west line across the Mountain area of the city.

The provincial MoveOntario 2020 initiative will fund the first two lines before 2020.
