@irate_reader: with the big commuter buses, I am not sure a bus lane would even work. Half the time the right most lane is blocked up because of them - in my experience.

I think spacing out the spots a bit better might also help -- not to eliminate stops, but just so they just don't all try to stop at the same intersection at the same time.

IF i recall, DDOT is funding the bus priority project there. I don't think it is that bad compared to, say, Georgetown (heaviest bus corridor), but clearly could use some improvement. Even turning the last block of 19th before the E street expressway into a bus only turn lane would help.

Enforcement is difficult in the sense that most of the people aren't "parking" they are just doing 5 minute drop-offs. Hurts rush hours badly but you'd need staff on each block to ticket them. The slug line by Eye st could also be structured a bit better.
