Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

Depends. Trackless trolley routes don't pass each other, and do sometimes bunch up. It depends on how long a stretch we're talking about (if it's only a few blocks, it's not worth taking up another lane if the space isn't there). As I recall in San Juan, the stretches of the practice we're talking about aren't long enough that a bypass lane is all that necessary.

Not to change the topic but San Juan has changed over time. I don't think the buses run anywhere near as often as they used to. The route that used to be A5, is now called T5 and runs half-hourly or so. A5 used to be at least double or even triple that back in the early 2000s. And while I didn't get to look at all of the timetables, there were definitely less buses running around when I was down there this year.
