The City of Hamilton is currently constructing the first Park-and-Ride facility in the City of Hamilton. The Park-and-Ride  is  located at the City’s Mountain Transit Centre, which is serviced by our A-Line express route 20 as well as route 27 Upper James. The Mountain Transit Centre is also the terminus of the Glanbrook Transcab service, where passengers can transfer to either of the foregoing routes. In addition, the Mountain Transit Centre houses the maintenance and storage function for the HSR fleet and transit administration including accessible transit service.

 The park-and-ride will promote the use of public transit by permitting the commuter to park their vehicle in an area outside the urban core and not contribute to traffic congestion, while reducing parking demand and improving air quality. The outcome of providing the City’s first Park-and-Ride facility will be to provide convenient parking for HSR passengers, with the goal of increasing ridership on not only the A-Line but other HSR routes.
