Upcoming Spring 2019 HSR changes

hsr_go_centre
Effective April 28 2019, HSR will be implementing changes affecting several routes.

Re-routing of Route 7 LOCKE due to construction will begin on April 28th and remain in effect for the duration of the project. Buses during this time will not service Locke Street directly. Buses will travel southbound on Queen Street South and northbound on Dundurn Street South. Re-routing buses will require customers to walk into the Locke St shopping district, but will allow buses to maintain schedule integrity.

Permanent re-routing of Route 34 UPPER PARADISE Will also begin on April 28th. This route has been impacted by a number of speed calming initiatives over recent years and buses are no longer able to remain on schedule. Upcoming changes to the route should make route 34 service more reliable for customers.

  • The route is being shortened and will now end at Main at MacNab rather than King at James.
  • Buses returning to the mountain will travel southbound on James Street South and then westbound on Hunter Street West to Queen Street South.

Permanent change to bus stops on King between James and MacNab Will also take place. The stop platform is being expanded to allow for greater accessibility for the six different route variations that operate at this location. The stops have been consolidated and re-aligned so that the buses running along Main St W (5-2 DELAWARE, 10 B-LINE EXPRESS) will operate from the stop closest to MacNab, while the buses running through McMaster University (1A KING5C DELAWARE, 51 UNIVERSITY) will operate from the stop closest to James.

Also starting April 28th is a trial stop re-location for the bus stop for Routes 2 BARTON and 3 CANNON from James at King back to James at King William. The trial will take place from April 28 until September 2019. The aim is to alleviate congestion created by multiple buses attempting to service a singular platform while at the same location 1 KING buses are attempting to turn onto James.

Finally the 56 CENTENNIAL Riverdale Pilot, has been extended until June 22nd, 2019.
