Hamilton City Council has approved an expansion of the Mountain Climber pilot program.

It allows cyclists to take an HSR bus up or down the escarpment for free.

After a year-long pilot that began in May 2017, council approved the permanent implementation of the Mountain Climber on the James Mountain Hill.

Council also approved a second pilot project of the program on the Kenilworth Access and Beckett Drive (Queen Street).

The pilot project will also be monitored for a year before staff reports back with recommendations on whether to continue in spring 2019.
