interesting to hear these stories 'from the mountain'. that is a nuisance. BRT along Upper James and the Linc would help alleviate a lot of these problems. Yes, my street (Strathcona Ave) has a bus right on it. I use www.hamilton.ca/hsr to look up schedule times and I have all my regular routes programed into my cellphone - #8,7,5,1 . I know the #8 York is leaving Victoria Park at 8:06 every morning so I get ready, pop my head out the front door to take a look and basically walk out of my house as the bus is coming down the street. So, yes, it's a great convenience. Although, even if I lived on one of the sidestreets around here it wouldn't make that much of a difference. I see all kinds of people coming from around the corner 2 or 3 minutes before the bus arrives. That's what I do when I come home. I work at Main and Gage and catch the #5 on Maplewood and Prospect. I leave my office and arrive at the stop about 1-3 minutes before the bus comes. Mind you, that route comes every 5-10 minutes all day long so it's no big deal. I've never missed one though. Also, the Upper James, Kenilworth, College, Sanatorium and Upper Paradise all come downtown. Have you seen the city plans for BRT along the Linc, Rymal and North/South along Upper James to downtown and Hwy 20 to Eastgate? That would help you guys out a lot up there wouldn't it?
