"if you wanted to turn them into congestion-managed toll lanes (not HOT lanes), with the toll revenue funding transit. So you can pay a toll to drive in the lane, the toll goes up DRASTICALLY as you fill up the lane, and all the toll revenue funds the transit and the busway."

that model (other than $ for transit) is exactly what is envisioned for the Beltway HOT lanes - variable tolls to keep traffic free flowing. The $$ will not go to transit, as they are required to pay for the lanes themselves.

however there will be no busstops on the beltway itself - that is HOT lanes open to transit on a highway not a transitway like Corridor Cities, or like CCPY. Those are really somewhat different from something like the Shirley Busway, IMO.
