All Hamilton Street Railway routes

You can ride any HSR bus free of fare to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pres-season game against the Toronto Argonauts, Friday, June 16 at 7:30 p.m. — if you hold a valid ticket to the game.

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 three 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 three 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.)
