In the peak hour of the morning rush, traffic analysts recorded 1,190 non-bus vehicles, which they compared to the 1,104 transit users riding in buses in the transit-only lane. If you prefer five-minute increments, those numbers average out to 92 bus riders and 100 vehicles. Those numbers are pretty close to start off with, but the non-bus vehicles occupy three lanes while the buses occupy one.

Not sure about 9 at night but the City data does shows that average hourly bus lane ridership for any hour between 7am and 6pm was 689 passengers. Even before factoring in passengers on Burlington Transit or GO buses whose numbers were not recorded as part of this study, that works out to be equal to a little over a lane and a half of peak-period vehicular traffic.

You'll find the math in Appendix D.
