Agreed, ventrems. The B-line is currently popular because it takes people where they want to go along Broadway and to UBC. A subway or dedicated LRT would be a magnet for the "savvy" bunch who have to commute from anywhere east of Granville.

Related to the above article, I can't help but wonder if not planning to run the LRT more centrally through Mac, not connecting Westdale with downtown, and having nothing in the way of firm re-development and densifying proposals for the Main corridor will imperil Hamilton's chances at obtaining LRT funding.

The Metrolinx chair did, after all, say something about providing value for tax dollars - something the current rapid transit configuration, with underused, articulated buses, does not seem to quite measure up to.
