I think the loss of convenience is being overblown by the store owners. I can't buy that all their customers will say "well, I really love that store and I've been shopping there for years, but now I have to park across the street, so forget it". A few might, but I think that the vast majority of people who shop along there will just adapt with time.

A more efficient bus route may also lead to increased ridership. If I were one of those business owners I wouldn't be complaining about the dedicated bus lane. I'd be figuring out a way turn all those people sitting on the buses being paraded right past my storefront into customers.
