Eyes on the Street: Muni Buses Block Green Bike Lanes for the 4th

We're pretty sure this happens every July 4th, but bicyclists headed westbound up Market Street toward Van Ness, and especially those turning right from Polk, got quite a surprise Sunday afternoon to find rows of Muni buses -- along two blocks -- queued up in the bike lanes. The difference this year is the bike lanes are green and separated with soft-hit posts, some of which looked pretty beat up after being run over by the buses.

We've got an email into the SFMTA to find out more but what do you think? Could the agency have come up with a better plan?
