@ David C/Froggie: The best way to get people out of their car is to make it very visible that transit is faster. The orange line in the middle of I-66 is a good example, but people tend to be too blind to see it.

Dedicated streetcar and bus lanes work very well, especially if coupled with triggered lights.

A problem is that the creation of dedicated bus and other transit lanes is often seen as an intrusion and deterioration of car traffic. The underlying problem is that car drivers tend to think they are the center of the universe count equal to a bus or streetcar full of people. Truly, it is hard to recognize that others should have to get the right of way, because they chose a more efficient way of transportation.
