The City of Hamilton’s Transit Division begins public consultation on the proposed (re)Designed Transit Network
HAMILTON, ON - The City is hosting its inaugural (re)Designed Network Consultation and Community Open House at David Braley Health Sciences Centre located at 100 Main Street West this afternoon between 1 pm and 6 pm. Members of the public are welcome to drop by to view the map, ask staff questions and learn more about the project. A staff presentation took place at 2 pm today, with a second presentation scheduled for 5 pm.
This is the first of many public engagement activities planned between now and the end of September. Community members may visit engage.hamilton.ca to complete the survey or for details about future events. The information collected during this public consultation phase will guide adjustments to the network design that will be presented to Council in early 2024.
The (re)Designed Network is a key output of the (Re)envision the HSR project that launched in 2019 to transform the customer experience and redesign HSR’s transit network from the ground up to best meet Hamilton’s current and future transit needs. As part of (Re)envision the HSR, the Transit Division interacted with more than 13,000 survey respondents, community members and stakeholders.
“A well-functioning and fully accessible transit network benefits all Hamiltonians including non-transit users. Enabling more people to choose transit helps reduce congestion and car emissions while moving people efficiently around the city. This better positions us to tackle the climate emergency and grow sustainably.”Mayor Andrea Horwath
“The (re)Designed Transit Network strategically places hubs at major trip-generating locations across Hamilton based on land use, employment and interregional connections. In combination with other network features, this makes transit a convenient and more attractive option to more Hamiltonians. The (re)Designed Network is a transformative city-building project that marks a significant step forward for transit in Hamilton.”Maureen Cosyn Heath, Director of Transit, HSR
