It's time to make a commitment to the future of public transit for Hamilton. LRT is a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform our city! People prefer rail over bus, the ridership is already there and will only increase further. Time and time again studies show the positive economic uplifts that come from LRT when implemented in cities throughout North America. Why would we be any different? The benefits far outweigh the initial costs. LRT is a proven force for densification and developer investment. It is transformative. The environmental benefits alone shouldn't be ignored. Hamilton
