BUS PRIORITY IN GREATER LONDON

This article reviews the techniques used by the Greater London Council to provide an efficient bus service in Central London. A critical examination of the use of bus lanes and traffic signal priority is given. It is concluded that the cautious policy adopted by the GLC of selecting very short bus lanes such that other traffic is unaffected is likely to produce only a very insignificant benefit to public transport users. The only way to gain a significant benefit in journey time for buses would be to allocate about 25% of roadspace in Central London to a comprehensive system of bus lanes. /TRRL/
