Transit systems nationwide are bracing for the blow but Hamilton is unlucky to also be renewing its 15-year contract for the ads splashed across buses and in shelters next year.
[HSR Director Don] Hull says the province's gas tax allotment formula is also unlucky for Hamilton. The formula weighs population change at 30 per cent and ridership change at 70 per cent in order distribute the two cents a litre of gas tax revenue.
Hamilton is "unlucky"? No we aren't. We just suck at being a city.
When you can't even keep up with Brampton on transit ridership growth in one of the oldest, densest and most urban cities in the country, it's not because of bad luck.
It's bad leadership, no vision and accepting the status quo of mediocre transit service coupled with one-way freeways bombing people all over town.
