I was in Manchester this past summer and had the pleasure of using their MetroLink that Ben described. The system was beautiful. Easy to figure out, frequent service, and it fit nicely with the 'feel' of the city.

Manchester is a great example because it is a city very similar to Hamilton. Roughly the same population, built on industry, and in somewhat of a transitional stage. Interestingly, like Hamilton Manchester also has a desire to become a 'transit-hub,' but they've chosen rail instead of airplanes or highways.

With Hamilton ideally situated in close proximity to Toronto, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, London, & Kithcener, it would indeed succeed as a transit hub. A rail-based strategy would embrace the future of inter-city transit. And how suiting that the 'Steel City' would be the centre of a Southern Ontario Rail network.

It all just fits so nicely.
