Seems we’re getting more roads with bus-priority lanes (which up until now I’ve simply called bus lanes, as there were only one class at the time, my terminology may change now), as well as a new class of bus lanes called bus-only lanes, which I guess are stricter in terms of vehicle type restrictions. Those will be able to be on pedestrian streets (there will be specific variants for that) in the DLC, and in the free patch, they will be on the new highways with bus-only lanes (there, there is one making up the innermost lane, like HOV lanes), and they will completely compose bus-only expressways (mainly for BRT, or bus rapid transit) and bus-only expressway ramps.
What’s BRT (bus rapid transit)?
