I think complaining about Barton service is a little off - The #2 has incredibly frequent service. It just also has so much ridership and so little headroom that the schedule is a complete work of fiction. The next bus is always scheduled only a couple of minutes away. It just happens to be full, or late, pontooned with 2 other buses that are also full, or late. I assume the hair-pin turn at John is why we don't see artics on this route, but they would be nice.

My personal problem with the #2 is that it has a strange route downtown - it basically doesn't intersect with the #5. Eastbound it stops at Jackson instead of Main, and Westbound it dumps you on the wrong side of King and you get to wait at the red light while your bus pulls away.

As for bike lanes: there is a bike lane on Victoria. It goes northbound and starts from Barton. It was done when they re-built the pipes under the road.

No, I don't know why they didn't give it a counterpart on Wellington. No, I don't know why it doesn't extend down to Cannon.

There are also bike lanes on Ferguson. The best way to get from HGH to Ferguson is to bike through the parking lots, because Barton is not good to cyclists.


Also, I reiterate my plan for the D(runkard's walk)-line:

It only does everything!
