In NSW Australia we have a distinction between "bus lanes" and "bus-only lanes".

From http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/usingroads/buses/buslanes.html

"Bus lanes are specially marked lanes that can only be used by buses, taxis, hire cars, emergency vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles. They are located on roads which have high frequency bus services."

"Bus only lanes are a special form of bus lane restricted to buses. Examples of bus only lanes include the Liverpool to Parramatta T-way route in south western Sydney and the North-West T-way that operates between Parramatta and Rouse Hill."
