Passport to Hamilton is back!
An initiative of Environment Hamilton, this project promotes the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR)’s Day Pass and local businesses across the City.
The Day Pass is a group pass (6 people, max 2 adults) can ride the HSR all day long for only $9. When Day Pass users present their day pass to locally owned restaurants, shops, places of interests throughout Hamilton, they are eligible for discounts.
For 2011, Passport to Hamilton is highlighting three areas of City – Dundas, Downtown / Waterfront and Ottawa Street North. Pick up these maps at your local library or Tourism Hamilton kiosk.

The purpose of this study is to undertake a comprehensive Pedestrian Mobility Master Plan for the City of Hamilton. This plan will establish a 20 year (2031) framework to improve the pedestrian environment and increase the opportunity for walking as a mode of transportation (active travel) and recreation that is efficient, comfortable, safe inclusive, accessible and improve health of communities and economic development.
The first round of PICs held earlier this year identified the opportunities and constraints to walking and mobility in the City. PIC #2 will present the alternative solutions based on public and agency input gathered from PIC #1.
More information about the Master Plan, including the Boards from PIC #1 can be viewed at http://www.hamilton.ca/PedestrianMP.
