HSR launches new mobile app

This article, from September 8, includes information about the HSR’s new app, HSRNow.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

The HSR launched a new app this past weekend called HSRnow, which works on either an iOS or Android device. The app is free to download.

For more details, please continue reading below…

The app comes at a time when the service plans to welcome back more transit riders and was released on the same day that service changes were to come into effect on HSR routes.

Service changes to HSR starting September 6

Customers can download the app by visiting hamilton.ca/hsrnow.

The trip planning app was funded through the federal government’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) and is one of many projects that support the City’s 10-Year Transit Strategy that strives to grow the ridership.

Customers can use the app to:

  • Plan their trips from A-to-B;
  • Get real-time next bus information for close-by stops;
  • Sign up to receive stop and route notifications, and text or email alerts.

More information on the app and its features can be found here.
