Have a question about HSR's response to COVID-19? Visit our FAQ for Transit Customers.

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, customers are required to wear a non-medical mask on public transit. This extra step can help protect others in spaces where physical distancing can be hard to maintain.

The Customer Service counter at 36 Hunter Street Go Station (ONLY) has resumed normal business hours: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday for customers to renew monthly passes, purchase and reload PRESTO cards and to purchase tickets. Our Customer Service Desk at Mountain Transit Centre (2200 Upper James St.) will remain closed to the public until further notice.

HSR has resumed fare collection and front-door boarding for customers. Operator compartment bio-shields have been installed as an additional measure to protect operators and customers.


The Summer Youth Pass, loaded on a PRESTO card is valid from July 1 to August 31, 2019 on regular service trips on all HSR routes.
