Extra Service for Catholic and Public Secondary Students

School extras are changing for the school year beginning September 2021. HSR is adding extra buses to regular routes that service several secondary schools across the city. Special route school extras will no longer operate. This change will ensure that school extra buses are more reliable. School extras will be timed with bell times and can be found using the online trip planner. HSR will continue to monitor the number of school travelers during the first few weeks of September and make adjustments as needed. If you have any questions, contact us at 905-527-4441 or [email protected].
