Yes, you can convert from BRT to LRT. Likewise, you can convert from LRT to BRT. However, in either case, you're doing the job twice. Again, the Government of Ontario (and all taxpayers) have already promised to cover the capital costs of whatever transit system Hamilton chooses, this is a mute point. The debate is about what is the most appropriate system for the lower city not what is the cheapest. Again, the lower city already has money-making ridership that will be able to sustain dedicated linear mass transit from day one (BRT or LRT). The question now is - if we are going to spend multi-millions of dollars of taxpayer money ANYWAY, and tear up our streets ANYWAY, what's the biggest bang for our buck?

LRT wins that debate from every study, case example, advocacy group and economist I've seen.
