Any new rapid transit solution along the B Line would allow buses to be redeployed to congested or under-serviced routes, thereby improving the transit situation in other areas of the city.

As for the hub-and-spoke model, it is the most often used due to its high efficiency. However you are correct that there are situations where it makes sense to reconsider it. Whether Hamilton is one of those situations I can't say. But there is strong merit to actually looking at where people actually need to go, and if necessary, thinking out of the box to realign routes. The GO station, and the fact that a multitude of routes interconnect at MacNab and along King, does make downtown a pretty significant transportation hub at this time. Hence I think that negates your second point, but it is a good point.
