This is rather bad news.

Bike share is public transportation. To be successful, it must provide reliable convenient transportation from all origin-destination points from A to B in the service area. This means there is always a bike available within 200-300 metres. There is a reason why that is normal bus stop spacing.

A mere 650 bikes, spread over the geographic area indicated, cannot provide that level of service. It is a mathematical impossibility. I therefore predict failure with this inadequate implementation.

I love bike share. It has the potential to transform Hamilton the way it has transformed Paris and is transforming New York. Once again, Hamilton takes a great idea and botches it with a lousy implementation. Pity.
