Extended 56 CENTENNIAL service this summer

Additional HSR service is coming to Hamilton Airport and Van Wagner’s Beach areas this summer

Beginning with the summer schedules, the HSR will begin providing additional service to the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and the Van Wagner’s Beach area. This additional service starts June 24th, 2018.

Customers traveling to the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport will not see any additional service to express bus route 20 A-LINE EXPRESS but will instead see service hours of the Glanbrook TransCab extended. The service, which costs an additional 50 cents on top of the standard fare, operates from the Mountain Transit Centre to Mount Hope. The hours will be extended during Monday to Saturday, and now on Sundays with newly added weekend hours.

Glanbrook TransCab will now run Monday to Saturday between 6:00am and 2:00am and on Sundays between 6:00am and 1:00am.

Additionally, HSR will extend service on the 56 CENTENNIAL to accommodate summer activities happening in the beach strip area. Service will be extended from the regular 6:00pm end time to 9:00pm Monday through Sunday.

The additional service will once again operate every 60 minutes between Eastgate Transit Terminal and Lakeland Loop, making stops at Confederation Park and the Walmart plaza.

It’s not known if these extended hours will continue in the fall. Even with the additional hours, service still will not start early enough or run late enough to accommodate employment hours in the area.
