As a counterpoint to its recommendation to increase transit fares, the Public Works Department is also presenting a Transit Service Enhancements Implementation Plan [PDF] featuring two new weekday peek periods bus routes:
Rymal Rd. between Glancaster Rd. and Pritchard Rd.; and
The Waterdown urban area with direct service to Aldershot GO/VIA Station and connections to Downtown Hamilton, Burlington Go Station and downtown Burlington.
Each proposed route will require two new conventional buses at $880,000 in capital costs and two operators at $300,000 in operating costs.
In addition, the report asks Council to consider a 2009 service improvement that would include new services on Rymal Rd. between Pritchard Rd. and Upper Centennial; a loop on Victoria Ave. and Wentworth St. through the Keith, Landsdale and Stinson neighbourhoods; plus miscellaneous other improvements.
