I do like the the Denver Tramway piece.

Coupled with the planned interim bypass lanes, queue jumps, and bus bulbs, this should increase speed and improve reliability. Then the BRT will come.
Thanks for the clarification.

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.
Exquisite reponse. So a little at the margin and something is better than nothing but as PLANSIT describes it will be a whole lot more powerful when combined with other improvements and when BRT on East Colfax is completed.
