Transit Riders Forum

Join members of the Hamilton Transit Riders Union steering committee and listen to some of our key focuses for public transit in Hamilton, and what we want to plan as we get ready for the HSR to unveil their new bus network!
Short presentations will be made by steering committee members Ian Borsuk, Don McLean, and Karl Andrus – along with a presentation by Sam Hersh from ATU Canada. These presentations will be followed by an open discussion by attendees to talk about Hamilton’s public transit. This will be the first of our ongoing bimonthly forums.
Please note, the Zoom call for this meeting is hosted by Environment Hamilton. The HTRU has been supported by Environment Hamilton, Hamilton District Labour Council, and ATU 107.
