Low cost alternative to LRT/MRT in our cities

Do we need high cost MRT/LRT to solve traffic congestion problem in KL, Penang, etc?

Bogota in Colombia is a metropolitan with 7 million people can move around 1.3 million passengers in each day with the low cost BRT a.k.a. Bus Rapid Transit.  And the cost is just 1/10 of expensive MRT system.

What do we need is political will and proper planning.

BRT main features are dedicated lanes for buses, cash card ticketing system and bus redesign for ease of alight  and depart at bus stations and using bicycle to connect last mile.
