Yes, it's quite apparent (and we've known this to be true) that there was a last minute change to discuss LRT instead of just BRT like was being planned. Even the route alignments make no sense along King/Main. LRT (and the next phase of BRT) vehicles have doors that open on both sides. There's no need to run the vehicles in the right lane like a conventional bus.

The bottom line is this - folks on this forum and in the city who have been to cities with great LRT systems and reaped the HUGE economic development benefts need to take some time now and help educate council, and staff.
I"m excited that we're actually having this discussion. Now we need to help them out.
