The C-Tran / TriMet contract for a non-existent Light Rail project also makes C-Tran’s Bus Rapid Transit project an orphan.

Without light rail, the BRT line, in addition to being more expensive, will cost far more as BRT riders would have to transfer to additional C-Tran buses to get to Portland.

In contrast, existing buses are far faster and lower cost as they continue on to Portland without having to transfer in Downtown Vancouver. So why is C-Tran pushing for BRT again?

It's the equivalent of asking why should a freeway be constructed when there's an existing Street. The idea of BRT and light rail is to provide transit that is faster, better and can move more people.
