This is a silly point, stated in a silly way. It's not that the BRT mode is not to be trusted, but that our officials are not necessarily to be trusted. I'm not a generic anti-government type, but clearly the big issue here is that the benefits of things like the Shirley Highway Busway (and its former bus-only operation) were not recognized by later generations of decision-makers, who changed the facility to operate according to their worldview.

In any point,human fickleness is not a characteristic of a transportation mode. It's a characteristic of humans and society.
