When I cycled from Poco to downtown Vancouver for two months, I only ever used Dunsmuir eastbound once. It's useless, the traffic lights are timed in the westbound direction so you hit a red light every two lights. Going eastbound on Dunsmuir, I can do 40km/h the from Granville all the way to Main St. My commute was 32km long each way, I'm not going to waste 5 minutes stopped at red light after red light just for the sake of supporting bike lanes.
