CATCH the Good News!

Citizens at City Hall (CATCH) release the good news (that Thom had previewed earlier). It certainly feels rewarding after years of TLC and the City Cycling Committee pushing council for this:
Bike racks on all buses
There are now bicycle racks on all HSR buses. Delays in receiving the racks from the manufacturer slowed down the expected installation speed, and the variety of bus models also presented difficulties, but HSR director Don Hull says all the racks are now in place.
The news generated a round of applause at yesterday’s meeting of the city’s transit steering committee. Waterloo region preceded Hamilton in installing bike racks, but Ottawa and Toronto are yet to put them on all their buses.
[The CATCH article doesn't mention our next door neighbour Burlington also installed the racks well before Hamilton did]
