You could build a BRT first, and convert to LRT later.

You build the dedicate right-of-way, stations or stops, and the traffic light priority system. Run the buses on that. If you later decide to have an LRT, you add tracks, overhead wires, power substations, and buy some LRTs.

If you build an LRT first, the capital cost (and therefore risk) is much higher.

Once again, BRT is flexible. You can start cheaper, and upgrade later.
