Bus Stop Bypasses have been introduced over the past few years at sites on London’s Cycle Superhighways to enable the continuation of segregated routes through bus stops. A Bus Stop Bypass (BSB) routes the cycle track behind a given bus stop. This physical layout requires that the path of cyclists and of those pedestrians boarding and alighting buses will cross, leading to potentially new interactions between them where pedestrians cross the cycle track. TfL commissioned TRL to undertake a programme of on-street monitoring of BSBs at six sites. This part of the monitoring programme was specifically included to assess potential impacts of the different crossing designs on disabled and visually impaired people.
