Hamilton's LRT project is being overseen by the provincial agency Metrolinx. Who says that LRT can have headways as low as 90 seconds. See page 10 of the Metrolinx backgrounder.

So actually, LRT can carry up to 10 times as many people per lane as automobiles. In effect, for the short and medium term, LRT completely eliminates congestion of people moving along its route. If the LRT vehicles become crowded, the vehicle headways can be reduced to eliminate the overcrowding.
