Trans-Cab

Trans-Cab is a shared-ride taxi service between the HSR and Hamilton Cab available to all passengers. This service is offered in parts of Glanbrook and Stoney Creek where buses do not currently provide service.

Trans-Cab does not replace existing HSR bus routes. You must travel as far as you can on HSR before transferring to Trans-Cab.

Accessibility on Trans-Cab

Trans-Cab service is fully accessible to customers who use wheelchairs, scooters or other mobility devices. Tell the bus driver that you need a regular sedan taxi if you cannot climb into a minivan taxi. The bus driver will pass this message to the taxi operator.

When you call Hamilton Cab to request a Trans-Cab pick-up, tell them that you need wheelchair accessible taxi service. Call 24 hours before, if possible.
