Rose Quarter Bicycle Lanes + Box

TriMet fought bicycle lanes through the Rose Quarter because of the inherent conflicts of having people on bikes travelling through the busiest bus transfer centers in the City. I enjoy this picture because this was the confluence of the early peak period of cycling in Portland and our tour group heading back into town.
I wasn't sure how good an idea mixing buses and bikes at this location was. Having sat here for several years as a high school student transferring from MAX to the OLD line #5 TriMet Bus (Interstate before MAX)....

The transit center was enhanced with the extra eyes on the street and the break up of the concrete (with the center bike lanes that are in green).
