My hunch is that we'll end up with BRT. Pity the BRT costing doesn't have an upper end as well. Given that the costs move closer over LRT's 25-year lifecycle, the comparative tax premium for BRT (a service that would, to cynics, be an almost invisible change on city streets) would be an interesting bit of trivia. 2.5% increase seems possible, but it's all guesstimates at this stage. Pretending that the city will be able to introduce radical service improvements without an accompanying spend and an ongoing tax hit for operational costs strikes me as a little disingenuous.
