Mr Corbell says the study presents a range of options.
"You can for example develop bus rapid transit and then transition it to light rail over a period of time," he said.
"So you can for example build a bus rapid transit corridor which provides a dedicated right of way, dedicated roadway for the buses separating them from the general traffic. You can build the dedicated bus stations and then convert all of that corridor to light rail at a later point in time when it's economically feasible to do so."
