It was very clear that the person I talked to had no interest in hearing the public's opinion but rather was looking to sell his vision

I think this is part of their role now. As I said, the BRT v. LRT evaluation has been done and it's proven that LRT will be a far better investment over the long term, even with it's more expensive capital cost. The city NEEDS to sell the vision now. Folks who think it's simply about transit will likely wonder why we're going for the more expensive option. It's about a whole lot more than just good transit.
The city needs to educate the public on this so they understand the scope and value of the investment.
