The bus lane from Bay to Dundurn poses no problems. Traffic flow in the morning is good and so long as no one parks on King in the evening it is also good. The problems occur in the downtown, largely between the Fairclough Building and the international village. But that is more a problem with the buses looping through the core because of all the connections, and the need for buses to cross over King. It worked a lot better when all the connections were made on the South side of Gore Park as opposed to where it all happens now. That has just created traffic problems. The reduction of Traffic from John to James has created a log jam. From my perspective, if you could figure that out I wouldn't complain about the bus lane at all.

The stats were posted here before and the ridership justifies the bus lane on its own. I think putting bikes in there would gum stuff up as buses would have to swerve around them out into traffic.

I like the idea of HOV but enforcement would became a big issue.
