I have equal respect for people no matter what mode of transport they choose. If the bus lane saves a bus two minutes of travel time, and it's loaded to half of its 50 person capacity, then that bus lane has saved 2 x 25 x 5 x 50 = 12,500 minutes in a work year which equals 208 hours which is over 5 work weeks. If the bus lane saves 5 minutes of a bus at a 60 person capacity, it saves 1041 hours in one year - the same as your 25 year figure for the car. If it's an articulated B-Line bus, then it saves twice that.

Arithmetic rocks!
