Ryan >> So why is transit in Hamilton starved for funding, year after year after year?

From 2002-2008, transit funding went from $21,882,790 to $41,258,765, an average increase of 11.15%/year. In contrast, during the same time period, overall city expenditures went from $439,801,185 to $553,277,115, an average increase of 3.90%.

Therefore, expenditures on transit have risen almost 3x as fast as the overall city budget from 2002-08. If that isn't enough, how much would be?
