The problem of course is that hiking up the cost of auto ownership does nothing to slow down the folks driving a Cadillac Escalade, but directly hurts the people at the bottom of the economic ladder who are driving a ten year old Toyota.

Far better to create fast, reliable, frequent and cheap transit, and watch people abandon their cars because the streetcar or bus is the more convenient and affordable choice.

Hamilton sadly chose the other route - increase fares again, reduce overall transit ridership, and almost inevitably move more people into cars.
