This report describes a study into the effects of bus lane violation on bus operation in London. The study was commissioned by London Regional Transport (LRT) and was carried out in the early summer of 1987. Part one surveys the effects of moving and stationary violators on bus operations at 38 sites; part two reviews the range of available enforcement techniques, including: publicity and education; bus lane conspicuity; physical segregation of bus lanes; better enforcement legislation, and more severe penalties for violation. Conclusions are: 1) lrt bus operations suffer considerable disruption as a result of moving and stationary bus lane violations; 2) general effects of violations on bus operations and the travelling public could not be accurately estimated; 3) financial effects of bus lane violations are tabulated for a limited number of lanes, and 4) compliance with bus lane regulations could be improved by a limited range of techniques which are recommended for immediate action. The report is a summary of the final report to the LRT. (TRRL)
