I think its not an either/or for bus bulbouts vs. bus lanes. I think there are appropriate corridors and sections of corridors for both and both have their place in a well integrated transit network.

There are places in the in our area that could benefit from longer dedicated bus lanes (16th St NW from Spring Road to at least Florida Ave) at least in the peak period. In other areas a different bus lanes configuration could be appropriate (current 7th Street bus lane is partially in 2nd lane where parking is permitted in right lane).

Would bus bulbouts be helpful on Rhode Island Avenue? Probably a good way to go on a corridor with signficant but not a huge amount of bus service and it would also accomodate residential parking needs as you indicate.
