Shared bicycle/bus lanes
A new report issued by the National Center for Transit Research at the Univeristy of South Florida gives an overview of designs, policies, and operational characteristics of shared bicycle/bus lanes in municipalities in the United States and other countries. The study examines and presents as case studies shared bicycle/bus lanes from four U.S. cities: Ocean City, MD; Minneapolis, MN; Philadelphia, PA; and Washington DC. Through its investigation, the study identifies and discusses contextual factors, design variables, and tools for planning and implementing shared bicycle/bus lanes, and provides recommendations for further research.
