Ryan, while it may be cheaper in the long run to live in the city close to transit, if the transit sucks why would someone use it? Also, while it may be cheaper to live in a city and take transit versus outside and driving in, I think you're omitting the fact that at least in Hamilton it takes 3 sometimes 4 times as long to get somewhere by bus than by car. So if the economy is based on dollars alone you may be correct but if time is included (and time is money isn't it) then it's not. I'm sorry, but your solution and by extension your false economy only exists if the transit system in that area is a viable alternative to driving.
