Maybe I'm more patient, but I had no trouble travelling to McMaster for four years from bus from teh central mountain.

I would take the 22 downtown, and then one of the four buses that heads to Mac. While the 22 only runs every 20 minutes in rush hour, I learned the schedule, and would plant myself at the bus stop five minutes early, so I made sure I didn't miss the bus.

Heading home the other way was more difficult, but you cluster at the first on campus stop (near the back of the hospital) and wait patiently, you'll get there eventually.

Generally, heading down, I started my trip an hour before I had to be there, and I typically got there in a half hour. The buses seem more crowded as people try and make it there "just in time for classes" and are typically more empty during the odd times between classes.

I don't think I've ever had to wait 30 minutes for the "next" bus to come along on the McMaster route, not when there are so many options.

Not saying LRT wouldn't make the service better, or that the situation as it is now is ideal, just that I, personally, would never choose a car over public transit heading to/from Mac from where I live.
