Brantford Wants GO Service to Hamilton

The City of Brantford and Brantford Transit commissioned a GO Transit Business Case report with the goal of bringing GO Transit connections to that city. The report, which was released on February 20th, 2014, was done by IBI Group, who also did the HSR’s study a few years ago.

The report recommends two different route connections (1A – Hamilton GO Centre via McMaster University and and 1B Hamilton GO Centre via Mohawk College) be endorsed as the preferred inter-municipal service links for Brantford. McMaster is a large generator of transit trips and has connections to Toronto Union express bus. Many Mohawk College students live in Brantford and the college also has a campus in Brantford.

The report cites several different service options. Included is peak-only service of three morning and four afternoon round trips, Monday to Friday, Monday-Friday service with 13 daily round trips departing between 6 am and 6 pm and Monday-Saturday service, which would be the same as Monday-Friday service but with the addition of 13 round trips on Saturday

The City of Hamilton will be closing Fennel Avenue West between West 5th Street and Garth Street for the Ride to Conquer Cancer event on the morning of Sunday, June 9th 2013 from 6:00 am – 9:00 am.

There may be minor delays especially if a bus is present during the heavy cyclist departure times. The Police will do their best to minimize delays but cannot guarantee it.

On the morning of the event operations will make a decision to implement the detour IF it is deemed necessary.

The below is the planned detour route for routes 33 SANATORIUM and 34 UPPER PARADISE between 6am – 9am. This detour will ONLY be used IF it isn’t possible for buses to safely use Fennell Avenue West.

Mohawk College Transit Terminal

The city of Hamilton and Mohawk College are in the planning stages of developing a transit terminal on the campus of the college. Take a look below at their description of the project:

The Mohawk College area is emerging as a significant node within the City of Hamilton. Mohawk College is currently and will continue to expand its facilities on the Fennell campus site. One of the immediate projects that are being advanced is the construction of a new multi-modal transit hub and mixed use building on the southwest corner of Fennell Avenue and West 5th Street. This building will provide for a layover and transfer point for Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) buses and passengers and has the opportunity to form a major station site along the existing and enhanced A-Line corridor.
