As a follow-up to yesterday's post about our next batch of transit improvements, I also wanted to share some info on two more exciting initiatives that are taking place in Hamilton now to help create a more balanced transportation system.
The first is the installation of more secure bike parking facilities around the city.
This next batch of bike lockers will be located underground near the Hamilton Convention Centre. The first downtown location was installed in the York Boulevard parkade last year. A complete listing of bike lockers can be found on the city website.
At $40.00 per year, this will certainly catch the attention of downtown workers and give them a legitimate option and a financial incentive to keep their car at home.
The second intiative is an update on the Hamilton Car Share program. A recent RTH article outlined the details so I won't rehash them here, but I wanted to mention it as it is part of this broad strategy to finally bring some balance into Hamilton's transportation network.
With work continuing on Hamilton's LRT plans and more streetscaping and two-way street conversions being planned Hamilton could finally begin to function and feel like a real city again. Much like our urban past, balance is going to be the key to our future.
