traffic congestion... CAN also be EXAMINED as a POSSIBLE pre-requisite for a successful LRT implementation.

This does not say that traffic congestion IS a pre-requisite for successful LRT.

Congestion has been found to play a fundamental role in influencing suburban voters to support transit initiatives.

This sounds like problem-reaction-solution. First create a problem (congestion) that doesn't currently exist and then offer the solution (LRT).

Overall, the conclusion would be that congestion does more to assist with LRT than LRT does to reduce congestion.

So, the solution that they offer (LRT) doesn't really fix the problem (congestion). Why do we want LRT again?
