I don't think it's win-win. Your entire premise relies on rush hour lanes being poorly enforced and therefore unuseful. If enforcement is a problem, increase enforcement! That's win-win, because cyclists and buses bear the biggest burden from illegal curb lane parking, as they have to deviate into heavier traffic or pull out into heavier, congested traffic. If you really want to do something meaningful, why not turn the curb/parking lane into buses/cyclists only during rush hour? That's a lot closer to win-win.

It is pie in the sky to think that the relatively greater attractiveness of walking/busing will reduce all those drivers. Sorry, the drivers aren't likely to have walking as an alternative.
