Also the argument that the quality of service by the HSR for students is poor is also pitiful. Given that students are not paying a fair fare, if you will, how do you expect transit improvements to be made? Additionally all the articulated hybrid buses on the 10 Beeline rout are servicing McMaster! So again we have tax dollars going to the university rather than servicing populations that are in need of transit. Populations that are PAYING MORE THAN STUDENTS. Heaven forbid we run that service on Barton where similar demands are made on the rout. But Barton is for poor people! Please note my sarcasm.

This expectation is unrealistic and the typical unthinking bourgeois assumption made by undergrads who've lived entirely with their parents until this point in their life.

Let's keep the fare fair for everyone and see if we need to keep this inane pricing structure that subjugates the working poor.
