Well you could start with many busways built in the 70s. The Shirley Busway, El Monte Busway (I-10 in LA), the list goes on:
"With the exception of the I-495 lane in New Jersey and the Pittsburgh busway, the early highway exclusive bus lanes have all since been converted to HOV lanes..."

Because people see vehicles and not people being moved they complain about "wasted space" in the lanes and demand that it be filled with vehicles. There is less demand to do that on separated facilities along city streets though since there is little room for cars to get onto and off of the busway in those instances.
