Point being that there appear to be people living in rural areas within the Hamilton borders. Their distance from the centre tends to preclude heavy transit adoption, and the HSR seems to be of the opinion that there are practical limitations to the amalgamated suburbs.

AFAIK, Flamborough has never had transit. That's 3-4% of the city's population right there.

To be honest, I'm not sure how these service numbers are arrived at. Do we count anyone within 500m of a transit stop? 1000m?

LRT has the ability to free buses up for deployment elsewhere, but apparently that's not in the business plan. Which is a shame, but not surprising.
