This is the development of a scoring system for the City's planned major LRT extensions and BRT routes, and ranking them based on available information (defined benefits, estimated costs, etc..) to determine which should be funded next. Attachment 2 has the report and rankings:

The approach seems useful, but they manage to do a lot of analysis while conveniently not saying very much, by leaving out the Green Line. I assume the main prioritization fight coming (assuming the Green Line actually goes ahead and isn't scuttled or scaled back by the province) will be whether the next big investment is Green Line North, Green Line South, or something else (e.g. Blue Line NE extension).
