Multi-Modal Traffic Flow in Shared Bus-Bike Lanes: A Scoping Literature Review in Comparison with Baltimore SBBL Infrastructure

Providing separate bicyclists from high-volume traffic improves safety but may not be always possible for a congested city. Sharing the lane with buses can deliver similar outcome but the Shared Bus-Bike Lanes (SBBL) are relatively new concept in the U.S. This study evaluates the existing literature on SBBL operations in the U.S. for better understanding of design, safety, and delay on selected performance measures. Baltimore had implemented 10 corridors of SBBLs in 2017 after complete overhaul of their transit system. This study also captures 55 hours of high definitions video data on the selected SBBL locations and evaluate the performance measures. The study will be beneficial for future design, safety 8 aspects, policy implementation, and effectiveness of SBBLs throughout the country.
