  1. Kudos for Metro asking for Bike/Bus interaction feedback, but this survey has some issues. Isn’t “Less than once per trip” and “Never” the same thing? Also, a respondent is only allowed to mark options in descending order of “1 to 6, with 1 being behavior that discourages biking the most” but isn’t “Bus operator drives too close to me,” “Bus operator honks at me,” “Bus operator passes at too high a speed,” and “Bus operator cuts too close in front of me” all equally discouraging (and quite frankly, “will I die?”) type of behaviors?
    (With all due respect to Operators since I know they have a tough job.)
