Some people have suggested that the rise of bike share might have an impact in other cities, but I would suspect that in Hamilton the 18% fare increase over one year is a bigger factor.

In some cases, bike share could drive more transit trips from drivers if it makes it more convenient to take transit one way.

And, as I mentioned, Hamilton has had a multi-decade history of declining or stagnant ridership due to lack of investment in the system.

It would be interesting to survey bike share users to see whether bike share replaced walking, their own bike, driving or transit.
