MCIA Report 2004

An Observational Study of the Use of Bus Lanes By Motorcycles And Bicycles[1]


Precis

An observational study of the use of Bus lanes by motorcycles and cycles (Motorcycle Industry Association 2004) looking at one bus lane in South London prior to the first trial allowing PTWs to use it. Most cyclists used the bus lane, and approximately 42% of PTWs were doing so illegally. Conflicts between cyclists and motorcyclists were not observed. Conflicts between buses and cyclists were identified as being the most frequent, with about 30% of buses leaving the lane to pass slow moving cyclists
