Brad Clark calls for “flexible BRT” and a rebrand of the HSR
Mayoral hopeful Brad Clark has laid out an ambitious plan to improve transit in Hamilton over the next eight years – a plan that will cost up to $24 million to operate overall.
Clark announced several initiatives he plans to implement if elected:
- Create a “flexible BRT” system on several corridors across the city, including the existing B-Line, the proposed A-Line from the airport to the James Street North GO station, and several corridors stretching from Stoney Creek and Ancaster;
- Enhancing transit service in Waterdown;
- Expanding transit service in Ancaster, Stoney Creek and Dundas to provide service throughout the day, seven days a week;
- Enhance and rebrand the HSR;
Clark estimates his plan will cost $2 million to $3 million each year to operate, not including capital costs for construction and new buses.
He wouldn’t say whether he’d support a bus fare increase to help pay for these upgrades, calling it “premature” to comment on that issue.
