It appears to me that there is a mostly geographical divide this time. The councillors who are in favor are located in the suburban and rural areas. And their go-to excuse is they're scared the operating costs will be too high.

There is a simple solution which short-circuits their excuse though:

Make a special tax zone within ~1km radius of the LRT line. If the per-ride subsidy of LRT does end up being higher than the per-ride subsidy of HSR Bus, then that difference should only be paid by those within the special tax zone.

That really pulls the carpet out from under the opposing councillors soapbox.
