Why is it that the "bus lane" is not as wide as the actual bus? Probably because they tried to create a bus lane on a narrow midtown road that is ill-equipt for this type of thing. Just another reason to love driving in Kansas City. Trying to fit a bus in the bus lane is a lot like trying to squeeze into a pair of jeans that are two or three sizes too small. It just doesn't work and things end up sticking out all over the place. Today, I had to get two lanes over from the bus lane just to be able to pass the bus.
In somewhat related news, the first concert I ever attended was Kris Kross. I liked their song "I missed the bus." It was about missing a school bus. Lyrics: "I missed the bus, yo, and it is something I will never, ever, ever do again."
