Mountain Climber Program

Hamilton's Mountain Climber Program is a partnership between the City of Hamilton and HSR that allows cyclists to ride their bike up the mountain for free at designated stops.

To participate in the Mountain Climber program, cyclists should wait at one of the marked stops at the top or bottom of James Mountain Road, the Kenilworth Access or Beckett Drive, and secure their bike to the front bike rack on the bus. They should let the operator know they are riding for free as a Mountain Climber, and depart the bus at the first available stop once up or down the escarpment roadway.
