Further thoughts about Hamilton’s LRT and Induced Demand:

Here are my predictions:

  1. Within two years of the LRT opening, ridership will be up substantially over the present HSR ridership on this route.

  2. The City of Hamilton has committed to appropriate transit-oriented zoning and development along the LRT route. Provided this commitment actually happens, I predict that Hamilton will experience the same economic boom along the LRT line as Toronto experienced along the Yonge subway.

Toronto did put in place appropriate zoning and development along the Yonge subway route, resulting in the "Toronto Mohawk", a spine of high-density buildings and development along Yonge Street that is easily visible from the air.
