I suppose we will have to wait for the staff report, since I disagree with your opinion that you've never seen any serious congestion.. west of Bay.

You will also have to keep in mind the perception the bus only lane has on the ordinary Hamiltonian. If he/she perceives LRT to be a tax issue, as well as a catalyst for congestion, LRT will not see the light of day in Hamilton. At the end of the day, Hamilton does not have a congestion problem and most Hamiltonians want to keep it that way. In addition, the arguments that the costs of LRT/BRT will be self sustainable are not being taken seriously, since the sustainability argument is built on a foundation of speculation.

Sorry boys and girls, as much as I like the novelty of having a surface rail system along the B line, the desire, simply does not substantiate the investment.
