One reason could be that electric LRT vehicles are cleaner and quieter than diesel buses. I would think a street-front patio or apartment balcony overlooking an LRT would be more pleasant than one overlooking a BRT because it would be quieter and you wouldn't be smelling diesel fumes all the time. Those properties would be worth more in terms of rent/lease values and would be more attractive as potential developments.

This is not to say that BRT has to be loud and dirty, but I am not aware of any BRT system that is electric.
