Typo correction: should be 10-16 stations per square km per the ITDP guide.

Let's look at the data for the proposed service area of Wards 1-4, 7-8 and 13 from:

http://www.map.hamilton.ca/Static/PDFs/WardMaps/AllWards_Statistics.pdf

27953 acres = 113 square km requires between 1,130-1,808 stations. Population of 274,930 requires between 2,749-8,247 bicycles. Note that these are minimum standards to avoid failure.

Conclusion: 650 bikes in 65 stations is grossly inadequate for the stated service area. Failure is guaranteed.
