AP, if we look at the Hamilton Bike Share Zone Map, the initial "phase one" rollout is in the orange and yellow areas. That includes Wards 1-4, 6-9 and 13.

Rather disturbing is the exclusion of the industrial employment zone in Wards 3 and 4. Equally disturbing is the inclusion of a non-contiguous zone along the Lakeshore Trail. This sends a not-so-subtle message of "bike-share is for recreation, not transportation." Kiss of death!

A transportation system should have as one of its primary emphases getting people to work. This is important for political buy-in and to set proper performance standards. My boss expects me to reliably arrive to work on-time every day. Bike-share needs to be reliably available to enable me to do that.
