Summer Youth Pass

Until at least April 5th, HSR customers are being asked to board buses from the rear doors only, and to keep a fair distance from the bus operators and other customers. Only customers with personal mobility devices (PMD) will permitted to enter and exit through the front door.

The HSR is operating on a reduced schedule until further notice. Most routes are operating on a Saturday schedule on weekdays. Weekend service remains the same: regular Saturday service will operate on Saturdays and regular Sunday service will operate on Sundays.
