We just returned from Portland and I doubt it is a quarter of the size of Hamilton, to ignore the fact that the MAX line is part of the TriMet (Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon) which includes most of the Portland Metropolitan Area and is likely much larger than the Greater Hamilton Area

City of Portland = 348 km sq land while Hamilton Urban Area = 228 km sq, which is probably more comparable.

To use the City of Portland's area alone as the basis for a comparison to the Greater Hamilton Area without including the Portland Metropolitan Area serviced by Oregon's Trimet (or at least discluding Hamilton's suburban area) is some classic misdirection.
