King has been a horrible street for decades. But it's better with the bus lane than without. Walking the street is a bit better now without idiot speeders doing 80k inches from the sidewalk trying to pass one car before the next light.

As I mentioned above, a better solution might be 24-7 parking on the south curb to Dundurn. Parking on the north curb to Dundurn except from 7-9 and 4-6 where the north parking lane becomes a transit/bike lane.

For anyone to even suggest this bus lane has any remote comparison with LRT is laughable. Quiet, smooth, clean, electric trains don't compare with dirty noisy buses. King needs to become a complete street or the business community will always struggle. They've all admitted they were barely hanging on before the bus lane. Personally I want to see a thriving economic climate in my downtown. I have no interest in going back to a street design that will allow businesses to barely hang on for dear life.
