I'm not certain I like the option that puts bikes & buses in the same lane. While most bus drivers are professional and courteous there are a few who exhibit signs of road rage. And in such a large vehicle that makes them very dangerous.

Last night I was crossing the Dumbarton bridge from Georgetown. Despite moving at 20+ MPH and occupying the center of the lane a Georgetown shuttle bus roared past me on the left, using the left turn only lane, then right hooked me in the intersection.

The back of the bus cleared the parked cars on Q ST by less then a foot. Exactly where I would have been squashed had I not panic stopped.

And for what? Both I and the bus then sat at the same stop light at the next intersection.
