Bikes in Bus Lanes


The MCI is delighted by Transport for London’s decision (announced 21st December 2011) to give motorcyclists permanent access to bus lanes on the majority of the Capital's red routes from 23 January 2012. 

The MCI has been at the forefront of calls to continue to allow access throughout the completion of two trials which began back in June 2009 and has been working with TfL and other local authorities for over 15 years on the bikes in bus lanes issue.

The MCI urges all riders using bus lanes to continue to ride responsibly in accordance with the Code of Conduct.

This is great news for motorcycling and its ability to beat urban congestion, and it is hoped that TfL’s decision will encourage other metropolitan boroughs to follow their lead.
