It's cheaper to build (but not a lot cheaper), but about twice as expensive to operate per passenger. In any case, BRT has never been a serious alternative rapid transit system. All the things LRT opponents hate about LRT - dedicated travel lanes, investing across the lower city, improving transit - are equally true of BRT. Anti-LRT politicians like Clark who advocate "BRT" as an alternative don't actually support BRT either. When you press them for details, what they're really advocating is Just More Buses (JMB). It's a trap, not a real proposal.
