Hi there. I just want to say how excited I am to see people other than me talk about bringing rapid transit to Hamilton. While I currently live in Toronto, I did live in Hamilton as a child between 1989 and 1993. Having done major research on GO ALRT and having seen the documents pertaining to the Hamilton Wentworth Rapid Transit Project of 1981 I can say wholeheartedly that Hamilton should have rapid transit infrastructure in place (I've even had dreams of Hamilton getting its streetcars back). If you guys haven't seen the article on GO ALRT that I contributed to at Transit Toronto then I encourage you folks to see it. I have always thought that there should be an LRT along Main St from McMaster to Eastgate Mall along with an LRT linking upper Hamilton with downtown via the median of the Clairemont Access Road and Upper James. I also think that GO ALRT should be revived given that the proposed system would have allowed for an exclusive ROW and would have allowed for trains running as often as every two mintues! And if you folks wish to find more info on GO ALRT I encourage that you contact the GO Transit Librarian at GO Transit's head office in Toronto.
