All of this was predicted, at least in the earlier staff reports on the implications of fare hikes, but the scary part is not just the fares. It's the lack of serious investment by the city in the HSR. Essentially, the only investment since the early 1990s has been as a result of provincial gas taxes. And if the city isn't willing to put anything into its transit system - and join the rest of the world in the effort to reduce car dependency, as Ryan notes - then what message does that send to the provincial government about providing funding support for LRT? The council can't suck and blow at the same time - saying they are enthusiastic about the LRT but refusing to make transit improvement a priority.
