Ryan - Why are you lying about my comments? I have never stated that LRT will not work here for the several silly reasons you try to attribute to me. I have repeatedly said that LRT is not bad it is however very expensive. A billion dollars for a metropolitan area of 600,000 people is just to much. Any transit in a city covering 1,200 km2 is a tricky and expensive proposition. If you wish to dispute the simple facts go ahead try, I do not rely on the mumbo jumbo some spout, build it and they will come. Lack of density is the bane of all transportation costs, from roads to transit. You simply cannot change that fact. You can try to ridicule my opinion because you have no answer for my concerns but that will not make those concerns go away or even make them any less real.

LRT is not bad but LRT is very expensive. We cannot afford LRT.
