Buses are great but please use just your lane...
Driving from East Liberty to City on Penn, Fifth Ave, Center is tough as the buses generally occupy TWO lanes for pick-up/discharge.
I drive to and from the City of Pittsburgh a lot for meetings as my office is in East Liberty near Bakery Square. For the past several years I have observed that most buses when dropping off or picking up passengers will NOT pull fully into the curb lane. What they do is block both the left lane they are traveling in AND the right lane they are using for drop off, so the front of the bus is in the right lane, back is in the left lane (if this is a street with two lanes). So all traffic must stop. There is no opportunity to pass on the left, which is the correct thing to do. The bus drivers don't want to wait to get back into traffic so the best way is to block it. There must be a huge transportation traffic time cost as the result of this common practice. This should be studied anonymously both when buses do this and don't do this and behavioral changes should be made.
