Bus zones shall be designated by appropriate signs or curb markings at those places determined by the City Engineer. Such bus zones shall be estab-lished on the far side of an intersection and shall not exceed 80 feet in length, except as set forth herein:
(A) When one or more of the following conditions exist, the City Engineer may establish the bus zone on the near side of the intersection or may extend the length of the bus zone to a total length of not more than 130, or both:
(1) The intersection at which the bus zone is to be established is a junction of more than one public transportation facility or route;
(2) Roadway construction or traffic con-structions make bus zones on the far side of an inter-section unsafe or impractical;
(3) The bus route makes a right turn at the intersection where the bus zone is to be designated;
(4) More than one transportation agency uses the intersection as a stopping point.
(B) When the location of a bus zone on the far side of an intersection would, in the opinion of the City Manager, cause special hardship and when, in the opinion of the City Manager, the location of such bus zone on the near side would avoid such special hardship and would not create a traffic hazard, the City Manager is authorized to direct the City Engineer to establish such bus zone on the near side of the intersection or extend the length thereof to a total length of not more than 130, or both.
