Evolo Condos in Montreal
As of next Monday, a new reserved bus lane will be in effect on Saint-Joseph. The relatively new 427 express line along that street has been a big success.

this is coordinated with the recent creation of the bicycle lanes on laurier (since cyclists don’t seem to coexist very well in reserved bus lanes)
In Dublin, the reserved bus lanes have a bicycle lane beside the footpath (they are of course extra wide). It is clearly demarcated using green-tinted asphalt. The reserved lanes are all-day so bikes are protected permanently from both from car and truck traffic and from carelessly opened doors. It does require some patience from bus drivers but it dispenses with the need for concrete separators like we use here.
david: sounds like an excellent solution. there’d be enough space on st. joseph for that as well. btw in vienna we also use tinted asphalt/layer, it is much more durable than the lines of paint, which are practically invisible for half of the year due to abrasion.
