@jimble Hah!, yeah...

Anyway, I actually like the idea of the mixed HOV-3/bus lanes. VDOT and others have called slugging a third means of transportation. Full cars are also incredibly fuel efficient, so there's that, too.

It is a shame NoVa hasn't bothered to install bus pads at freeway exits or boarding stations along the Shirlington Busway, which could be made into a powerful mass-transit corridor.

I grasp the point of the article, though, and am in agreement.

A bit off topic: A pie-in-the-sky idea would be to somehow link the Orange Line Metro stations with dedicated carpool/busways on the 66 corridor, allowing cross-platform connections with high-speed buses and boosting capacity on an overcrowded system.
