My latest post, on the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce embracing walkability and transit as necessary business infrastructure:

For older cities like Hamilton, this provides an opportunity, as they developed around a time when density was greater in new developments than it has been in recent decades, thus providing in most cases a greater stock of already (or easily convertable) walkable areas. It’s proximity to Toronto (it’s connected by GO Train) and other major centers can serve as an additional competitive asset. 

Public transit use is on the rise in the United States. TPM wonders if the car century is beginning to wane?
