well, the U.S. is not the best place to generate information on high capacity bike use. How about some data from Scandinavia and/or the Netherlands.

How about some data from Scandinavia and/or the Netherlands.One graphic on mobility in Downtown DC that is 30 years old states things differently, in how many,how far, in one lane, in one hour, by mode: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rllayman/489961132/It states that 4,000 bicycles can move about 13 miles in one hour.RL

Were they not considered?
Don’t worry, we’re used to it.

Data from a presentation by Jeff Tumlin of Nelson Nygaard:
Throughput of one mile of road lane for one hour
Automobiles = 900 cars moving approx. 900 - 1800 passengers/hour (this is in a city setting. On the highway with limited numbers of exits, the throughput ranges from 1600 to 2200 cars/hour)
Traditional bus service = 6,250 passengers/hour
Bus Rapid Transit = 10,000 passengers/hour
Light Rail = 16,000 passengers/hour
In a dense urban setting, this number can be 2 to 4 times higher with heavy rail, although typically such services are underground.

Date: Friday, October 16, 2009, 1:34 AMBrisbane City Council is currently building or promoting some A$10-15
billion of tunnels and bridges but at the same time has been closing
"Bus Lanes" to convert them back to general traffic lanes.
In amongst these huge and expensive facilities designed to reduce
congestion, are two initiatives which in other situations,
circumstances and/or contexts, might be "useful" ... but what do you think?
