"...a recent Hamilton-Today article that lists all the buses operating in the busiest part of that corridor shows that peak ridership is actually conservatively between 1,500 and 3,000 passengers per hour."


Qualifier: Numbers calculated on the service capacity of bus routes using King between John and James. 85% of said buses (ie. 70 of 83) were operated by the HSR, and 43% of those (ie. 30 of 70) were linked to the B-Line family (1/5/10/51).

Even at that, however :

30 x 40’ buses, seated passengers at capacity (40 per): 1,200
30 x 40’ buses, seated & standing passengers at capacity (83 per): 2,490
30 x 40’ buses, passenger crushload (95 per): 2,850

30 x 60’ artics, seated passengers at capacity (62 per): 1,860
30 x 60’ artics, seated & standing passengers at capacity (105 per): 3,150
30 x 60’ artics, passenger crushload (142 per): 4,260
