Bus Pass and Transit Information

HSR Universal Transit Pass (U-Pass)

The Winter 2021 HSR bus pass program for all Mohawk College students has been suspended due to COVID-19. Students will not be charged for a bus pass in their student fees.

If you require access to local transit, you can load funds onto your PRESTO card for individual rides or monthly passes.  This can be done online at prestocard.ca or at any of the PRESTO customer service locations within Hamilton. 

Students who experience financial difficulties (including transit) are advised to contact either the International area or Financial Assistance so that a staff member can work with them to understand their circumstances and provide the best advice and funding resources. Students can email financialassistance [at] mohawkcollege.ca.

Remember that the Winter 2021 awards application that open are now open for students access bursaries and awards from November 16 to January 19, 2021 for Winter 2021 semester. Visit the Apply Now for Scholarships and Bursaries website.

All full-time students at Mohawk College receive a 4-month unlimited bus pass for the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) for each semester they are enrolled. This service is provided by the Mohawk Students' Association (MSA). The pass allows you to ride the HSR anywhere, anytime throughout the city.

As of April 2019, your HSR U-Pass will be managed using a PRESTO card, instead of a sticker on your ONEcard. 

Once you have selected your timetable, you can pick up your PRESTO card at the following locations at your campus:

Fennell Campus

MSA Office (Room G109)
