I mostly rode on the Red Line. Rode the Brown Line a few times, the Blue Line once and the Orange Line going to and from Midway Airport.

I can see how the L enhances Chicago's reputation as the Windy City.

Good grief.

If you're going to tear out the streets, why not put in a streetcar?

The City of Chicago is not trying to create a new transport system with these lanes. They are trying to speed up multiple bus lines where they share the same route through the Loop. Instead of creating a streetcar for a few blocks, it will allow six bus lines that stretch into the surrounding neighborhoods a fast trip through their most congested stretch. Some 30,000 bus riders over the six lines are estimated to used the lanes each day. Accompanied with protected bike lanes and it will make the streets far more comfortable for public and active transportation.

Are streetcars and buses mutually exclusive when it comes to these lanes? Perhaps you could include both crosstown streetcars to connect with Union Station and West Loop along with bus service in the same lanes. Not sure it's worth the added cost, though.

They are not generally mutually exclusive, but it depends on the traffic levels and stopping patterns for both.

I do seem to recall a couple of major-ish bus corridors on Chicago's South Side that would be good candidates for streetcars, but I'd have to check.
