Hmm. The sidewalk in the recently added picture certainly bulbs out, but I don't see any indication that it's a bus stop. -- Jmabel 22:30, Aug 28, 2004 (UTC)

I assume that this is N. American usage, and so I've added this to the text — if a bus- or -roads-enthusiast from elsewhere in the world disagrees, please revert my mistake. Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 12:44, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

"Benefits include...additional parking spaces"? Are you serious? How could that possibly be true? It seems obvious to me that anything that "replaces roadway that would otherwise be part of a parking lane" is removing parking spaces. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here.

The user is likely referring to the fact that a recessed bus bay needs run-in and run-out tapers (the bus cannot "jump" sideways into the bay"). A build-out removes the need for these tapers where no parking would be allowed either. Therefore comparing TWO BUS STOPS, the one with the build-out has more parking.

  • Support - as it is, this is basically a fork for the American name usage. Kerb/Curb extension is more generic. Ingolfson (talk) 07:35, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

The discussion is linked to the other article, no point in voting in two places. MickMacNee (talk) 12:30, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
