With the HSR’s Ticket to Ride program, you can ride free of fare to Tim Horton’s Field for as much as two hours before game time and free of fare from the stadium until the end of service.

You can also take advantage of Tiger-Cats Express shuttles. Park your car at or near one of four terminals across the City and the HSR will whisk you directly to the stadium on an express bus — and then take you back to one of the four terminals after the game. (You can also take another HSR bus to one of the four terminals — just show your game ticket to the bus operating and that’s your ticket to ride.)

2 Barton

Buses serve all local stops between the Hamilton GO Centre, downtown Hamilton and Barton Street East at Lenister Avenue North — just one block north of Tim Hortons Field.

3 Cannon

Buses serve all local stops between the Hamilton GO Centre, downtown Hamilton and Cannon Street East at Balsam Avenue North — just south of Tim Hortons Field.
