Oxford 3: bike/bus lane

Here in another street in Oxford, we see evidence that it is possible for bikes and buses to co-exist, a wonderful example showing how buses on the Bristol-Bath railway path would improve the lives of all path users.

Here a bus is just managing to squeeze down a bike lane.

If all bike lanes in Bristol were opened up to buses, and if they were allowed to use the Advanced Stop Lanes, then bus timetables would be more reliable and the experience of bus passengers greatly enhanced. FirstBus are already in meetings with Bristol Council on this topic, and will be rolling such a program out during the summer months.
