Good point holdon, but transit in Hamilton is structurally underfunded. Jacking up fares when they already pay for 57% of the total cost (in most cities it's around 50%) is dumping too much of the burden on riders. Especially when people living in rich suburbs don't pay anything at all towards supporting transit. That's crap, and as the article states hamilton is the ONLY city to do this.

There was a great article on RTH a week or two ago about how to pay for better transit service without gouging the poor. Damn spam filter won't let me post the link but if you go into the address bar and change the blog_id from 547 to 531 it's there.
