Tiger-Cat Express Shuttles

HSR, in partnership with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats is continuing the very successful promotion that started in 2005. For the 2016 home season, Tiger-cat fans will be allowed to board HSR vehicles free of charge with a valid game ticket.

Express shuttles

In addition to regularly scheduled HSR service, there will be Express shuttle services from four different locations to and from Tim Hortons Field for all Tiger-cat home games (including post season). The four locations, allowing Ticat fans to utilize "Park and Ride" lots are:

  • Lime Ridge Mall - southeast corner of the parking lot (parallel with Limeridge Road along the southerly border of the parking lot).
  • Eastgate Square - southwest corner of the mall parking lot (corner of Queenston and Kenora).
  • University Plaza – Transit terminal platform, easternmost bus stop (route 10 bus stop).
  • Downtown - King Street north side, between John and Hughson (existing HSR route 10, 20 bus stop) and Main Street, south side at John Street (existing HSR route 5, 10 bus stop).
  • Downtown on November 13, 2016 – Due to Remembrance Day ceremonies at the Cenotaph in Gore Park, the pickup point for express buses before the game has been revised to Main Street and John Street (southwest corner, existing HSR route 10 bus stop). After the game, the express buses will drop off at King/Hughson as per normal.

Ticat Express Buses will provide transportation to and from Tim Hortons Field based on the following guidelines:

  • The first trip to the game will depart the four locations two hours prior to the game start time.
