We’ll be on a partial publishing schedule today and tomorrow, meaning no syndication.  If you want to see what’s going on in Capitol Hill and beyond, check out Streetsblog D.C. and the Streetsblog Network.  Also, I’m traveling right now so I probably missed some headlines, leave any I missed in the comments section.

    What training have LA Metro bus operators been given in the use of these new-layout bus stops?  Who has the right of way when a bus is pulling into a stop over the bike lane?

  •  Wow. I can’t believe that is there.

    The paint is already smearing, yikes!

  • Merging traffic must always yield. However, buses do have certain exceptions, not sure if LA requires motorists (and bikes) to yield to buses.

  • The layout of the bus stops isn’t really new. Buses already pull across the bike lane to make stops on streets like Santa Monica, Sunset, Venice and Westwood. And they have to yield to any traffic already in the lane (including bikes) before moving over, just like with any other lane change.
