Well busing to downtown doesn't work so well for everyone. Hamilton's transit system for many users is atrocious. I lived in Dundas for 18 months and quite frankly it just wasn't an option.

As for parking, I wonder how many underground lots Hamilton has? Here in TO there is an abundance of underground parking, much of it buried under the huge office towers. And much of the residential parking is either buried or located in covered lots on the buildings first floor.

As Jason says, excesssive downtown surface parking is a symptom of a dying core. If land prices were more expensive it would be too costly to use it for parking.

LRT is one of many ways to get the core moving and start bringing businesses - and people - back.
