Hamilton Street Railway 0610-0616 were New Flyer DE60LFR buses built in 2007. This is the first articulated order for HSR since their GM Artics.

The livery was designed by Dave Kuruc of Hamilton, Ontario and was selected on October 16th, 2006, from 51 submissions in a contest held by the city. It was unveiled along with the buses on April 3rd, 2007 with a ceremony at Hamilton City Hall. These buses feature ramps at the front and middle doors and custom seat inserts with the City of Hamilton logo. The buses received bike racks a few months after their delivery.

On July 3rd, 2009, 0613 suffered a break in its articulation joint, the rest of the buses in this series were pulled from service shortly after as a precaution. Issues were later found with the articulation joints. The buses were later repaired and returned to service by early September 2009.

0611-0614 were retired in May 2019, after being replaced by 1820-1830. 0610 and 0615 remained active in order to provide additional fleet capacity following service expansions in September 2019; they were eventually withdrawn in Fall 2021 after experiencing issues, and were scrapped in late 2022 prior to the arrival of replacements.
