BCU's

What happens when someone swipes a metrocard before a route has been entered? Does it just show the card balance?

Exactly the same as if a trip was entered - the passenger won't notice anything different on the validator. If you were to log in to the metroCARD site and check your validation history, I'm not sure what it would show in that case.
$2,500 fines for vehicles illegally using red Bus Only lanes - could cut the state's debt real quickly if they extended that to regular Bus Lanes!

If no trip was entered though it shouldn't deduct a fare, I think. Wondering if this in in fact the case.

Red Lane - not red bus.

And a question - what does BCU's in the heading refer to?

Bus Control Unit, an Adelaide terminology used to describe the driver's ticket sales console.

I believe the patronage is credited to the next trip entered on the BCU
