The idea is simple, use a HSR Day Pass to travel the City and present your pass to 200+ locations makes you eligible for discounts at locally owned businesses. One $9 HSR day pass allows 6 people, up to 2 adults and up to 6 children (no more than six people in total, group does NOT need to be related) to use the HSR for an entire day. Without a day pass, just one bus trip for six passengers would cost $14.10, and you may need to take several bus trips in just one day. This project is affordable and a unique way for you and your family to support local businesses, visit different destinations in hamilton and reduce your carbon footprint. You are not required to use your day pass when you buy, simply pick a day suitable for you and your family and begin your adventure!
Environment Hamilton can show you how this largely unknown and underused discount pass can become your family’s Passport to Hamilton. For example, you and your family could take the bus down to the Art Gallery of Hamilton, where you’d get $10 off the regular family price, then hop on a bus down Main Street and visit the Hamilton Children’s Museum and receive buy-one-get-one-free admission. You could even finish the day off with a free kids ice-cream cone with one adult purchase at Hamilton Waterfront Scoops, or go swimming with your family at the YMCA for free. There are thousands of possibilities for low-cost family adventures. VS.
*Remember, you do not need to use the HSR day pass the day of purchase!
