Hamilton Transit Matters

Hamilton Transit Matters (HTM) is pushing City Council to work towards Frequent, Electric & Fare-free public transit in Hamilton. 

On January 1st, 2024, people using personal mobility devices including wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, and CNIB cardholders, will no longer be able to ride buses for free.

For many people living with disabilities in Hamilton, this change will drastically affect mobility and access to healthcare, grocery shopping, employment, greenspaces, family, and friends.

Do you or someone you know rely on free bus rides to get around Hamilton?

We want to hear from you!

Hamilton Transit Matters was formed in partnership with our allies at Hamilton 350 during the last Municipal election. The team carried out a successful campaign asking candidates to pledge to form a Committee of Council that would study the feasibility of a Frequent, Electric and Fare-Free Hamilton Street Railway (HSR). In all, almost thirty candidates signed the pledge, six of whom were elected to council, including the Mayor.

The group is now focussed on ensuring those who pledged during the municipal campaign follow through on their commitment to form the committee; to that end we're delgating, expanding our allyship, and engaging with the public.
