charlie -- one of these days I am going to write about this exact point.

The proposal in Chicago for doing this on Clark Street is a good example (better than DC actually). Of course, there, being Chicago, they have much higher volumes from all the various routes using the buses currently--between 40,000 and 70,000 riders per day.

But 16th St. would be the test case for this in DC, because the S buses now are considered by WMATA to be the line iwth the highest use in DC. (Closer to 20,000 daily riders, higher than the 90s, X2, 70s, I don't know about the 30s, but that's really two routes, the Wisc. Ave. as one, and the M Street-PA Ave. as another.)

I might get to do some work on the Clark Street project. We'll see.

Combine it with HOV2 for that lane + the "bus" cameras that Dan M. wrote about yesterday, and you have a killer combo.
