Recommendations on the integration of bicycle in trams and BHLS infrastructure projects

More and more countries are aware of the benefits of cycling on town congestion and health. Additionally, transport planners are discovering that cycling and public transport can be complementary modes. In France, the return of tram lines and now the promotion of buses with a high level of service (BHLS) puts the question of integration or segregation of cyclists and heavy public transport vehicles back into the spotlight. In 2012, FUB (French cyclist federation) launched a questionnaire to compare the "state of art" of 25 French urban transport authorities (AOTU) concerned with trams lines with the opinions of bike users. During a national meeting in 2013, GART (French transport authorities group) and FUB examined best practice about intermodality between cycling and public transport: number and typology of accidents, road design, capacity and location for cycle parking and governance system were some of the bike and ride options in debate.
