Maybe the richer neighbourhoods would support transit In their taxes if they saw value for their money.

They do get value for their money. It's just that the value isn't necessarily frequent transit service right on their doorstep. Transit is a public good like public education, something everyone benefits from regardless of whether they have children in the system or not. Changing the public perception of the purpose of transit is just as important as improving service in outlying areas, presuming of course that these 'richer neighbourhoods' you speak of are on the periphery. There are plenty of 'rich' neighbourhoods in Hamilton that currently have the density to justify a higher level of service.
