You certainly could triple the number of buses in Hamilton and that would see tremendous ridership growth. But any city that has developed a huge % of the population using transit has made that transit as convenient, comfortable and fast as possible.

Tripling the number of buses in Hamilton and adding a city-wide network of transit-only lanes with priority signals, and express routes would have a massive impact on the % of Hamiltonians feeling comfortable to ditch the car, or one of their cars, and use transit as a regular part of life.

Adding more buses simply sharing the road with cars and stopping every block will increase ridership but not as much as those transit lanes and more express routes.
