BRT... could be converted to LRT in the future at very low cost.

The difference between LRT and BRT is what..tracks, vehicles and power lines overhead, right? So really, the 'low cost' you are speaking of is actually just the difference between LRT and BRT right now, with a bunch of extra costs tacked on by doing them in separate procurements, not to mention the disruption to the BRT during conversion process. It would be cheaper to build LRT outright then to build BRT and replace it with LRT. Also, if we do BRT and LRT we have to buy the BRT busses and the LRT trains. So it would be a lot cheaper to just build LRT.

By putting in the BRT now we get something now

What makes you think that switching to BRT would expedite the process at all?
