Bus Use of Shoulders
Transportation Research Board, 2006 - Bus lanes - 91 pages
This synthesis documents and summarizes transit agencies experiences with policies and regulations that permit buses to use shoulders on arterial roads or freeways to bypass congestion either as interim or long-term treatments. Both transit and highway perspectives are explored for jurisdictions that allow bus use of shoulders and those that have considered, but have not implemented, these treatments and the reasons why.
