Motorcycles in bus lanes

Motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and tricycles but not those with sidecars, are currently allowed to travel in most red route bus lanes in London. This is part of a trial which began on July 24th 2010.

Red routes make up the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) and are those roads with red lines instead of yellow lines, and roads with green backed directional signs.

The new experimental scheme will aim to improve compliance with speed limits and ensure better road safety awareness for all road users, paying particular attention to motorcycles in bus lanes.

The Transport for London websiteThis is an external site. has further information on the trial including the criteria that will be used to evaluate the scheme and an online survey that allows you to have your say on the trial.
