Ti-Cat fans can ride the bus free of fare on game days



The Hamilton Street Railway is again offering Canadian Football League fans free rides to and from Hamilton Tiger-Cats games at Ivor Wynne Stadium this year.

The 2011 Ticket to Ride program allows you to ride any HSR bus from three hours before the start of any home game until the end of service on game day, if you hold a valid ticket for the game. The 2011 program starts Wednesday, June 22, when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats meet the Montreal Alouettes at 7 p.m. in a pre-season game.

You can also take advantage of Tiger-Cats Express shuttles. Park your car or take another HSR bus to one of four terminals across the City and the HSR will whisk you direct to the stadium on an express bus, and then take you back to one of the four terminals after the game.

Tiger-Cats Express shuttle buses operate from:

  • University Plaza, stopping only on Main Streets East and West at Emerson Avenue (McMaster University) and John Street South. Buses start about two hours before the games and operate every 30 minutes until game time.
  • Lime Ridge Mall park ‘n’ ride, stopping only at Lime Ridge Terminal. Buses start about two hours before the games and operate every 30 minutes until game time.
  • Eastgate Square Terminal stopping only at the park ‘n’ ride lot at Queenston Road and Kenora Avenue. Buses start about two hours before the games and operate every 30 minutes until game time.
  • King Street East and Hughson Street in downtown Hamilton, stopping only on Main Street East at John Street South. Buses start about two hours before the games and operate every 20 minutes until game time.

You can find free parking in lots with the Tiger-Cats banner near the terminals at Eastgate Square, Lime Ridge Mall and the University Plaza.

Buses operating along all four express shuttle routes drop you off beside the stadium on the east side of Melrose Avenue North, just south of Beechwood Avenue.

After the game, buses operating on all the downtown and University Plaza shuttles pick you up on the west side of Melrose North, just north of Cannon Street East. Buses operating to Limeridge and Eastgate Terminals pick you up on Cannon East at Melrose.

Passengers who use D.A.R.T.S (Disabled and Aged Regional Transit System) can also ride to the game for free, if they hold a valid ticket for the game. (.pdf) Book your ride by calling 905-529-1212.
