btw, this nonsense comment about BRT being 'more flexible' is simply untrue. A true BRT system as promoted by this ex-Hamilton traffic planner (haven't they damaged our city enough?) is just as fixed in it's own lanes with level platform stations etc as an LRT system. A true BRT system is literally the same as LRT except without all the EcDev spinoffs. BRT systems in Bogota or Curibita are in just as much trouble in case of a fire/accident as LRT systems around the world.
If we're going to use possible accident delays as a reason to not build an LRT line, can these same people please fill the Spec letters page with that same rationale the next time a freeway is proposed??
Didn't think so.

That said, I'd love to see a couple of true BRT lines built to connect to the LRT B-line.
