    @Lindaevans No, it's good that you stated being passed by. What if you had a vision or physical impairment and could not wait another 45mins for the next bus?

    I had a new driver on Upper James St in January. He had the front door nicely by the curb and lined up with the pavement markings for visually impaired but the back end of bus was more than a few inches from curb. I gave him feedback on both matters and his trainer reinforced the pavement marking lineup and thanked me for the back door comment. Saves other passengers from a trip going the wrong way!

    HSR had a few April 30 schedule updates on some routes. Also note the 41-Mohawk detours for Sat May 13 on Ottawa St due to Sew Hungry event (check @hsr on Twitter for map).

    Good news for Fall 2023:
    [QUOTE]BIG NEWS COMING THIS FALL

    You’ve been patiently waiting for this news and it’s finally here! Beginning in September, all-day Sunday express service will begin on routes 10 B-Line and 20 A-Line. This means express service will run 7 days a week on these two routes. We’re also improving connections to/from Stoney Creek by extending Route 55 to Winona Crossing. More details about these and other improvements coming soon.[/QUOTE]
    Yay, big box land will finally have bus service!

    GO Transit weekend changes for Lakeshore West line between Oakville GO and West Harbour Stations:
    https://www.thespec.com/news/hamilto...5c81f23df.html

    n an “important update” to riders, Metrolinx said that GO buses will replace train service between Oakville and West Harbour GO stations from Friday, July 7 at 9 p.m. until end of service on Sunday, July 9.
    Metrolinx said that the temporary change is to accommodate infrastructure work on the Lakeshore West corridor.
    Just a general comment on GO STations--some of them close their buildings before 9pm and that means no restroom access. Be prepared and time your hydration needs accordingly (so you don't run out of bathroom options). Burlington GO Station closes at 8:45pm!

    ATU107, the bus operators union, had a recent membership vote in favour of a strike. So there's a possibility of Hsr service being impacted next month. Someone told me the news-a strike would make havoc for students and commuters relying on transit.

    HSR operators with ATU local 107 have been on strike since Nov.9. This very early morning, the Mayor has announced a tentative deal with the union. Bus service is expected to resume tomorrow morning but I've read that union members won't vote on the offer until Monday. YMMV so plan your bus travel with a back up if possible.

    City of Hamilton is hosting the Grey Cup this weekend. Tomorrow is also a local school professional activity day off for school boards so expect some volume on the buses if they are operating.

    The HSR is not included in the upcoming One Fare program for electronic fare payment users but since many SCers do go into the GTA and use GO Transit and possibly the TTC, they'd probably want to know about the Feb. 26 program launch: https://www.ttc.ca/riding-the-ttc/Up...e-Fare-Program
