The fare increase debate aired on cable 14 and it was stated that there is a multitude of fare subsidy programs available to almost every Hamiltonian that is disadvantaged in some way. Hamilton taxpayers already subsidize public transportation at over 50%, regardless whether they use the service or not. Furthermore, what about the $1.7 million that went missing from the HSR, no wonder fares had to increased? Personally I think they (Council) should make the cash fare $3.00, a Toony and a Loony lets you ride all day. When the odd time arises (car broken down) taking a bus is still cheaper than taking a cab, and not all that bad last time I used public transportation.
