Best Hamilton Transit App

Get from A to B with less OMG. Hamilton’s favourite free transit app 🚀

Rocketman is Canada’s favourite transit app, and Hamilton riders love it!

Made in the great white north, we’ve embarked on a mission to help Canadian transit riders have a better experience with their local transit agencies. We give Hamilton riders real-time information for the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) and GO Transit buses and trains.

We show you only the information you need to get to your destination with minimal wait time and (preferably) without delay. We can’t make your buses go faster nor can we make them wait for an extra few minutes for you, but we can let you know when you need to be there to catch one.

Rocketman Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the Rocketman transit app in Hamilton?2021-05-17T21:25:30+00:00

Using Rocketman is simple, really.

You head to your favourite app store where you can download it for free. Once it’s installed, you favourite the stops you use most frequently, group them together by route, and set reminders so you get to where you’re going on time.

Rocketman helps Hamilton Transit riders stay up-to-date throughout their trip with real-time alerts. When we find out about changes and delays, you do too.

Is the Rocketman transit app accurate?2021-05-19T16:42:13+00:00

Rocketman stays accurate by using feeds and vehicle tracking information that’s provided by transit agencies. We can keep you up-to-date on your Hamilton transit ride because we’ve got information from the Hamilton Street Railway and GO Transit.

This information helps Rocketman display alerts as soon as delays occur, determine where vehicles are and their arrival times. This means that you need to ensure that you have an internet connection through Wi-Fi or data to use Rocketman most effectively.

What is the best Hamilton Transit app for iPhone?2021-05-17T21:27:04+00:00

The best Hamilton Transit app is obviously Rocketman.

Sure, there are other options. But we’re not sure why you’d want second-best when the clear leader is completely free and so easy to use. We provide transit riders with real-time alerts and delay notifications when we know something you do.

Rocketman has your back.

What is the best Hamilton Transit app for Android?2021-05-17T21:27:47+00:00

Rocketman is the best Hamilton Transit app, hands down. As long as your phone is a smartphone (yes, including Androids) we can provide you with real-time alerts and delay notifications. But you do have to download the app first.

Just visit the app store and download Rocketman for free!

Why do you even need to use a Hamilton Transit app?2021-05-17T21:29:02+00:00

You certainly don’t have to use a Hamilton Transit app, but do you really want to travel without one? If waiting at transit stops with no idea when the bus is going to come and facing unexpected delays with no notice sounds like a good ride for you then, by all means, ride without a transit app.

But for the rest of us, there’s Rocketman!

We aim to provide you with the most stress-free trip possible by keeping you informed along your whole route. That’s why we designed the app, and that’s the experience we aim to give you.

So, save money with transit but don’t waste a bunch of time!
