Bicyclist almost side swiped when passing a stopped CTA bus on Milwaukee

What happened

While passing a bus stopped at a stop a black pick up on giant tires almost side swiped me. Plate # YA 1 ND or something like that in those shapes. I’ve felt like I was almost sideswiped many times before, but now I really know what it feels like.

I stopped to tell the state police officer parked just on the other side of the bus stop and he was unable to help because he was “off duty” and “unarmed” but he was in an official vehicle.

Suggested improvements for this location: Bike lane, wider street, wider bus stop so the bus can pull in more.
