DDOT should be talking to CSX about moving those tracks as far North as possible, ideally right up against the current retaining wall, and making sure they are covered by a concrete deck, basically an extension of the tunnel. This way, they could extend the deck out to where the tracks are now, and use that subterranean area for bus parking. I think the model for this would look more like the area around L'Enfant plaza where there is a subterranean level for freight and bus operations, then the top would appear to be a surface level street integrated directly into Cap Hill. Moving the tracks North would then allow for more integrated access of businesses, streets, and trails to to the river with ramps and staircases, rather than trying to cross the tracks at every turn.
