"...I was immediately struck by how much of a "car-city" Hamilton is compared to Toronto."

It's important to keep a perspective. Any city in Ontario is a "car-city" compared to Toronto. Hamilton actually has good transit and bike culture compared to most municipalities. Even the east and central Mountain has pretty good bus ridership and pretty good HSR access to downtown.

But this is largely despite council. Many suburban councillors would love to just level the city and remake it into Mississauga. (Meanwhile, Mississauga is trying to develop what Hamilton already has - a downtown.)
