It's interesting to note that, even though this bus-only lane is a dry-run for LRT, it's on the wrong side compared to an LRT. The LRT plan is to occupy the south (left) side of King St, which would leave the curb-lane available for stopping cars and for cyclists. Obviously the right-sided bus doors prevent this from being an option so you can't blame the city for putting the buses on the wrong side, but still - it means that this situation is "temporary-enough" that the city might ignore it.

Because this is meant as a "temporary pilot project", I could see City Hall telling cyclists that we'll have to suck it up for a few years and wait for the Cannon lanes and the LRT. That's kinda weak.
