Description

At around 6:10pm I was riding my bike westbound on Central Row. Bus 508 was picking up passengers. When they pulled out, they almost hit me on my bike, despite the fact I had a flashing headlight. I had to move into the left lane to avoid being hit, thankfully there wasn't a car passing.

This intersection needs to have complete streets facilities. I suggest a floating bus boarding island and route a protected bike lane behind it. This is in the NATCO guide and common in Europe. The intersection itself should have protected islands for bikes and pedestrians to reduce crossing distance and calm traffic.
