I don't know about the population of Detroit, other than the fact it's sinking like a stone, but their Woodward LRT route is a 9-mile route planned from Downtown to the Michigan St Fairgrounds. they project 22,000 riders per day.

Hamilton's east/west B-Line corridor which consists of routes 1/5/51 and 10 already carries 36,000 riders everyday.

The case for LRT is FAR easier to make here than in Detroit.

Our east/west LRT route is a 16km long route....that's 10 miles.

The Woodward LRT in Detroit is exactly the same type of system as we're proposing here. It's not remotely close to a GO Transit style system.
