The only immediate, cheap change that I can see to increase ridership is for the city to eliminate the by-law which requires businesses to have a certain number of parking spaces per whatever. That will serve the two-fold purpose of encouraging many new businesses to open while at the same time creating a parking nightmare where it's more convenient for people to take the bus than to drive around forever looking for a parking spot.

The HSR probably needs to increase the McMaster student fee and put even more buses on the East-West lines to reduce congestion on those buses.

And I think we need to stop complaining about how expensive the bus is. The HSR ticket prices are cheaper than every service in the Golden Horseshoe except St. Catharines, which is the same price.
