I can safely pass the buses, I just wait till there is an opening in traffic or the bus pulls back into one lane. I'm not the asshat that went online to rant and rave about it.
Logic > you. Argument also > you. I would tell you to again but your comprehension level is quite low so have fun playing tough guy on the interweb.

Roads are designed for the type of vehicles that will be using them and that includes the width of lanes, at best a driver of a large truck or bus needs to use every bit of their concentration just to keep the vehicle in the lane on Vancouver roads designed for trucks; on roads not designated for trucks it's near impossible and you might have a couple inches of room in the lane to play with. Now, put a bus driver on roads that aren't designated for trucks, include the focus that needs to be put on passengers and maybe you'll understand why they take a lane. If the experienced, licensed and skilled commercial drivers here aren't enough to convince you that what they do is totally legitimate, I challenge you to rent a 5 ton and drive over the pattullo bridge or around Vancouver roads without crashing or having a nervous break down. It's not as easy as it looks.
Yes, I think I've gotten it 10 posts ago, until some "tough guy" stir it up again to prove "I'm better than you".

I started avoiding W 4th altogether because of horrid traffic jams and jaywalking. Pt Grey is a little bumpy but much less chaotic.

This is the post he quotes he "got it":

You probably should stop talking about your "safety" I would fail you if I could.


Weak argument, you can kindly stop talking now, thank you.


Please. More like dick drivers.
and I'm the "tough guy" that replied, LOL, idiot.
