We use transit signal priority, although not as much as I'd like. It's not like an ambulance where you automatically get green. Basically it just holds a green a few seconds longer or switches from red to green a few seconds faster if there's a bus nearby.

On its own, the effects are nice enough but relatively minor. Fine, but sort of not worth the headache. Coupled with limited stops and bus lanes (or at least queue jumps) it's pretty powerful.
