HSR Transit Update

Beginning tomorrow, March 19, until at least April 5, HSR customers are being asked to board buses from the rear doors only, and to keep a fair distance from the bus operators and other customers. Only customers with personal mobility devices (PMD) will be permitted to enter and exit through the front door.

As a result, HSR will not be collecting fares until further notice.

Customers are asked to stay behind the yellow line at the front of the bus, and to keep the seat(s) behind the operator free at all times.

As a reminder, beginning Monday, March 23, the HSR will be using a Saturday schedule from Monday to Friday, across most routes. There are some exceptions, and all details will be posted on Current Saturday and Sunday schedules will continue and remain unchanged. Where required, revised timetables are being finalized and will be available by March 20, 2020

HSR continues to be a safe method of travel, this is a precautionary measure in an effort to increase social distancing, particularly for bus operators.
