 Here is a typical 2 lane street residential street, not too dissimilar from the ones we have in Bangalore. Notice the following

1. Pedestrian refuge even on a narrow street

2. Pedestrian crossings & frequency (second one at the top of the turn)

3. Bus stand and visible indicators for the same

4. Staggered bus stands (top & bottom picture, refuge+crossing in the middle)

5. Space for trees & wide pedestrian pathways

6. Lighting & signboards (ped xing, keep right etc on the refuge)

 There is actually a underpass for pedestrians & a cycle track under where the cars are parked.
