10 B-LINE EXPRESS gets extended; Saturday service starting September 1st

There are some pretty solid service changes coming in September to the HSR in Hamilton. The most notable of a change is to route 10 B-LINE EXPRESS, the East-West express bus that operates between the Eastgate Transit Terminal and University Plaza in Dundas. The route has added service on Saturdays and service on weekdays has been extended by three hours, ending at 10:00pm instead of 7:00pm.

Route 44 RYMAL will get extended north to the Walmart Plaza just south of the QEW every day of the week while 56 CENTENNIAL will return to operating on weekends only in the area. 18 WATERDOWN will also see a short extension to Plains Road in Burlinton to make up for the removal of Burlington Transit’s 1 PLAINS bus from the Aldershot GO Station.
