The 2010 Operational Review determined that the HSR's average bus speed, system-wide, was 18.7km/h and that most of the lower city routes had average speeds below 20km/h. Cycling speeds will vary, but traffic is a strong upward motivator. Google's yardstick appears to be 20km/h.

The HSR's average speeds are colour-coded on a system-wide map in Exhibit 3-7 of the Operational Review. There are only two sections of King between Wellington and Westdale where buses' average speed exceeds 20km/h: Margaret to Strathcona and New to Breadalbane.
